piano — of uncivil law

this piano is always played
but slowly slowly loosens pitch
drifting keys flex a growing dissonance

the pianists do not hear
they are exercising ever exercising
as the tone declines across the octades

we summonsed
we hear their scratching clash
we see their schadenfreuderern
pillocks in the audience

i have hired the sphinx’s amplifier
speakers the size of pyramids
the rasta dj

they’re on the way
