Friday Fictioneers — How To Suffer An Art Attack

Copyright -John Nixon

Welcome to the Annual Nutsville Art Show!

Our next exhibit is titled Keyed-in by Eccentric Anon.

This is an incredibly powerful living sculpture, albeit a possible one-day wonder. As you might observe, the artist has rushed headlong into his creation and met with a dreadful accident. Whether this was intentional or not, we may never find out. It’s not every day that an upright piano consumes a downright idiot.

The instrument’s tuner has just confirmed that the only Chopin to be performed on this particular piano will involve the surgical extraction of said artist from the keyboard.

No photos, please.

Author: Sarah Potter Writes

Sarah is a British eccentric who writes offbeat fiction, haiku and tanka poetry. When stuck for words, she sketches or paints instead. She's into nature conservation, sustainability, gardening, dogs, natural health, and reading. Her sociability is something that happens in short bursts with long breathing spaces in between.

    1. Quite right. I have two dangerously consuming things in my tiny creative work space at home — a PC and a piano. You should have seen me dashing between the two when writing a musical several years back. Lucky I survived the experience!

    1. Ah, that would be telling. Let’s hope his nearest and dearest (if he has any) or some artists’ charities benefit from sales of the videos, although that is a motive for murder in itself.


  1. Oh Sarah, this is so funny, I am actually laughing out loud and glad I don’t have a cup of tea in hand otherwise I would have splurted it all over the place! I adore your sense of humour, I can hear you telling this story! From the title to the ‘no photos please’ is brilliant. Best piece of flash fiction I’ve read in a long time, seriously!! 😀 xxxx
