"Sharp" - Siri Mellem (Poetry on Buses)

I am a sharp and I'm black
What am I?
Of course, I'm a piano key!
I play beautiful music,
and put pictures of flying notes in your mind
and a story of music to go with it.
Listen to my music
and you'll get the picture, the story, and the song
all together!

Siri Mellem is 8 years old.

So my question to you is this: is that beautiful double entendre intentional? It made me smile on the bus this morning regardless. I love it when someone pulls a "gotcha" on me with my interpretation of a word or phrase.

Were the definitions of sharp part of the poem?
