The Pianist

Image

An old man

with wrinkled skin

In a crinkle-free suit

that hangs loose

on his drooping shoulders

is playing a piano

with a gleaming surface

while the floor under them

reflects the overhead lights

and people walk, talk, pass by

without a single glance

towards this old man

and his perfect notes

that fill the air-conditioned air

on this valentine evening

in the hotel lobby

where he plays alone.
