Competition in the Key of S Minor, by Patricia McGoldrick

Competition in the Key of S Minor,
by Patricia McGoldrick

The oldest sister
always
leads the way
first to walk
first to run
first, the piano, to play

first to hear
the youngest sister
play those notes so clearly
without a minute of practice…
nearly.
