Concertos in F minor, E flat

This is the hall the pianist built.
These are the pieces by Chopin and Liszt
writ for the hall the pianist built.
Here is the audience soon to be kissed;
these are the pieces by Chopin and Liszt
fit for the hall the pianist built.
Perfume of silence, a hovering mist
over the audience soon to be kissed.
These are the pieces by Chopin and Liszt
played in the hall the pianist built.
Conductor, orchestra paid to assist
enchantment of silence, the radiant myst-
ery plying the audience soon to be kissed
by the wondrous bravura of Chopin and Liszt,
loud in the hall the pianist built.
Banished the ocelot critics who hissed
conductor, orchestra hot to assist
the shimmer of silence, the palpable myst-
ery touching the audience soon to be kissed
by the plangent bel canto of Chopin and Liszt,
alive in the hall the pianist built.
Arthritic thumbs and a frangible wrist
lionized ocelot critics who hissed
conductors, orchestras pledged to assist
the luminous silence, whose promising tryst
pump-primed the audience soon to be kissed
in the lucid acoustic for Chopin and Liszt—
might deaden the hall the pianist built.
Everyone’s waiting, and here is the twist:
fingers arthritic, a petrified wrist,
wild inner critics (who sputtered and hissed
conductors, orchestras poised to insist
that the silence be broken, the gladdening mist
should envelop the crowd who expect be kissed
by exalted concertos of Chopin and Liszt)
must fire-bomb the hall the pianist built.
