Charlotte Digregorio's Writer's Blog

Baby​ ​Grand:​ ​a​ ​Haiku​ ​Sequence
 
 
under​ ​the​ ​piano
i​ ​hide​ ​from​ ​father 
i​ ​am​ ​5
 
pushing​ ​me​ ​off
the​ ​piano​ ​bench 
teenage​ ​breakdown
 
leaving​ ​home​ ​…
the​ ​piano​ ​also​ ​hides
deep​ ​cut​ ​scars
 
father’s​ ​death​ ​day
centered​ ​on​ ​the​ ​piano 
his​ ​chilly​ ​smile
 
inheritance​ ​— 
opening​ ​the​ ​piano 
childhood​ ​secrets fly​ ​away
