Piano

a chain hanging from the ceiling
a piano hanging from the chain
I stand beneath

it falls

doesn’t smash
the keys don’t fall out
like my teeth

it plays a song
sounds like a car crash
a horror movie
the monster jumps out – wearing a mask
and tries to kill me

wait

it’s just applause
the song is finished

the monster is clapping
in the audience
all wearing masks

so am I
