THE PIANIST (2002)

By Jay Passer

THE PIANIST (2002)

the baby grand in the living room
under the coat of arms
and cedar roof beams

what's to become of us?

sold for gold teeth, a cracked spyglass,
back alley blitzkrieg and
Cayman Island cucarachas

what's become of us?

you gotta be a prodigy to survive
and even then, sticky fingers prevail
