HER LAST SONATA

POW#13..... inspired by classical music.... Argentina pianist Martha Argerich


HER LAST SONATA

theatre under the stars
on a stage in Buenos Aires
her fingers burnt
from the Argentina sun
and cigarettes still burning

staring at the ivory
unable to feel the keys
knowing her tearful hands don't lie
without tears
she hears sonata three

Slightly surreal, Wayne. I'm glad she can still hear the music!

all the tears are in hands with no feeling.

The more moving for its compression and the brief veiled references to her personal idiosyncrasies and the famous Prokoviev 3. Powerful and effective.

Sad and moving. Where do we find more about the "hands with no feeling" allusion?

This is quite a poem, Wayne...
