Tuning

Middle C , quivering thumb

It doesn’t sound right

Treble clef , hurried scale

Something’s off .

Bass clef , stern reminder

Needs to be tuned

Both hands fumbling

Starlight waltz blurred

The twinkle from her eyes

Waltzing down her cheeks

Needs to be tuned , yes ,

the tension in those strings,

the piano and her heart .
