And the piano, it sounds like a carnival
And the microphone smells like a beer
And they sit at the bar and put bread in my jar
And say, “Man, what are you doin’ here?”
She approached the piano, her heels clicking lightly against the worn wooden floor beneath her feet, and hid a sad smile as she reached out to move her fingers over the old ivory keys, pulling a layer of dust away with her fingertips.
Somewhere behind her, she heard a man’s voice.
“Do you play?” He asked.
She froze there a second, her hand poised in mid-air. Sometimes, she could still hear the music, still remember the way it felt to bring the old instrument to life. It called to her, much like a siren’s song, but she had denied it for so long.
“It still works,” the man added, sounding almost hopeful. “Might need a bit of tuning, though.”
She turned and tilted her head ever-so-slightly in his direction. “I don’t play anymore,” she said.
“But you used to?”
“Yeah,” she said with a soft nod of her head. “Used to. Don’t anymore.”
The silence hung between them a moment, and then she heard him again, posing the one question she’d never been able to answer for herself, much less to anyone else:
