A Music School

An old mansion

The European Anthem by Ludwig

Van Beethoven

Tinkles on tired piano’s


Slippery teak steps

To a cockpit

Library overlooking

Grey roofs folded together

Corrugated origami


A breeze floats

Over outposts of memory

Czerny exercises

Vinyl records

A local harp


I twist a billet of donation

Into the tight slit
