A (Sort-of) Piano of One's Own

I've known 
how to play piano 
32 years.

I've never
played a piano
belongs to me.

I played a piano 
that belongs to me 
I bought one*


For it's cherry-popping occasion,
I played 
straight through,
because it was 12:15 a.m. 
(and too late to figure how 
to adjust the stand height),
wearing headphones 
because it was 12:15 a.m.
(and I've got an upstairs neighbor),
playing the Brahms Rhapsody
because it's the only song on earth 
I play well
from memory.

It may be just 
a Korg digital keyboard 
(with headphones)
that has to be played standing up 
(for the time being),
but nonetheless 
(and I'm not really 
a materialistic person
I swear),

I'm pretty pumped.

(*Next up:  
a phone 
that takes better pictures 
than this one.)
