Painting by Vincent van Gogh
All the Pianos in the Wood
I like to play on the black keys
because I believe that night music
is the key to being dreamed.
I like the music of dreams that
is more real than ‘all the tea in China’
and ‘all the coffee in Guadalupe’.
I like it most of all that all the love
birds in the world are singing their
hearts out, so that the hurt world
will know again, that dancing
on one foot the other is not forgotten.
