prima volta: the first (or second, if you don’t count the unloading) surprise

to repay andy for his kind assistance,
i started today by tidying up his shop.

just kidding.


today i
fetched tools
(so many phillips-head screwdrivers
and nary a phillips-head screw in sight.)


and i made my first
surprise discovery:
this piano once
served as a cabinet
for a bar of
english leather


perhaps there
was once a little boy –
an adorable, enterprising little boy, no doubt
did not want to practice piano
any more than he wanted to
take his bath.

    Well at least it smelled really good in there! It is so fun to think of a little boy being naughty with this bar of soap…and I still can't believe you are actually going to take disassemble a piano, but I am so proud of you…

Pull up a chair why don't you, and let's talk . . .
