The Piano

Ambrose Bierce defined the piano as: "PIANO, n. A parlor utensil for subduing the impenitent visitor. It is operated by depressing the keys of the machine and the spirits of the audience." Mr Bierce clearly had never experienced this piano.

I came across this glorious specimen today in Times Square, as I was on my way to Page One.

With its red disposition and golden horse on the lid, it is clearly trying to compare itself to greater things.

Unfortunately, the only marquee car this piano reminds me of is CR7's after its interchange with the Manchester airport tunnel.
