my family will be in vietnam for the holidays.
i needed to fill the void
so i found a piano,
neglected for ten years in a den, covered in dust.
the owners wanted to get rid of it
and my fingers were bored of tapping on tables
so i recruited mark, tyler, jeff and ryan to shlep it up three flights of stairs.
she’s not a yamaha or a baldwin.
she’s not a shiny, pretty ornament.
she’s tattered and out of tune,
but she deserves to be loved just like the rest of us.
i named her sabine, after griffin’s muse.
