piano

he couldn’t
play the piano
but he could
bang his frustrations
feelings of hopelessness
out on the keys
he couldn’t
dance
but he could
thrash his limbs
to and fro
in time with the beat
he couldn’t
face himself
but he could
pretend to try
he knew
he would never
play piano
but he banged away
anyway
