The Piano Tuner Tuning the Piano

A country doctor commencing on a cure.
A chiropractor stretching the spine of his patient.
An ornithologist listening for particular birds.
The dance of lonely awkward people.
Children in a schoolyard making friends.
Workers striking synchronous hammers.
Mice euthanized in a whirlpool of squeals.
Boxers wanting to lose the fight they’re winning.
The glass of winter dawn shattering.
Doors opening on the ringing of time.
An avalanche burying the mountainside.
A teardropp somersaulting.
Bells learning to cooperate in limited space.
The concentration of a prisoner
Chiseling into a wall of silence.
A jeweler cutting facets of pure sound.
A strongbox opening on a combination that keeps locking it.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
