The Continuing Poem Saga About the Winter of 2005 Goes On Like This

December 16, 2005
There is a tiny shiny red piano

in a shop window
on the other side of the street

the side we walk down
when we go
to the farmer’s market
on a Saturday morning

A child’s toy
the color of a candy apple
and perfectly shrunken down
with a dozen big black and white keys

I don’t covet it
but do deeply admire

Now each day I remember
I peer across the road as I go by
and am pleased
by its bright and shiny aspect

Things I do covet
a long wooden cutting board
a set of black and white plates
cake stands
