Hermit the Crab

gnarled conductor’s fingers
lead prodigy to strokin’
his own keys,

on his own seashell piano
on his own beach

won’t be long before he’ll
be playin’ his own song
without needin’ a nod
from Big Daddy
Crabby,

tiny fingers creep
from beach to beach
like some hermit
crab that can’t
find his
niche.
