distal…not distant

{Satie|Kennif}

I met a man
who seemingly spoke
through the aged
decrepit
dead fingers of
Eric Satie

yet, certainly spoke
of his own accord
and voice

the ghost
harmlessly alive
within…

distal phalanges
hammering away at
a piano
tickling the prisoner
until it confessed

coughing dust off strings
secrets:

unveiling, how
what appears as
carbon copy
is really two
originals, locked in
immortal connection

to the ghost
harmlessly alive
within…
