My Fingers

too hard or not hard enough I don't
have to play as fast as the masters do
amateur as I am I am not compelled
to earn an audience by showing off

speed can make it hectic unhearable
composers happily sing more slowly
every nuance allowed plenty of time
as mind grasps heart slowly melts

and my fingers can do it my brain
scrambling to keep up sometimes
succeeding for pages Beethoven
prepared us for just this moment
