Middle C

I’ve forgotten almost everything,
except for maybe middle C.
It’s been more than 20 years
since I’ve touched the keys.

It’s not a grand piano
or even a baby.
It’s an upright,
so maybe I’ll try some ragtime
and a little Vince Guaraldi.

When the piano movers
finally bring my wife’s Wurlitzer,
I’ll have a lot to relearn.
Because I’ve forgotten almost everything.

Success! You're on the list.

Listen to “Middle C.”
