They sat next to each other
on the piano bench.
The night,
without candles.
They played ‘Le Sacre du printemps’,
for four hands –
The native – Stravinsky’s – version,
in chiaroscuro.
Two silhouettes
like ‘LA’ and ‘SI’,
The two intangibles
Played next to one another
The instrument
Without keys,
Two nudes
were seeking light
At night
Without fire.
The piano got inaudible:
A backward glance,
A look into the mirror,
A tandem
of two deaf solos –
Performed exactly as they dreamed – alone,
While the conductor –
De Dirigent –
Under the piano bench
Was laughing out
