beautiful unfriendliness

45 years after the Great
Revolution I watch on screen
In a new movie from the soviet country the
Of a slow waiter into a fast runner
Caused by the false news that the hundred and first
Waiting guest is a national award winner.
The barely different dressed viewers
In this corner theatre of the split capital
Of my split home country laugh about
The everyday scene, not insignificant
On a screen. why do the people laugh.
Oh slowness, to be praised,
Of the not impelled anymore! beautiful unfriendliness
Of those who can??t be forced to smile anymore!

love the title, adjective and substantive are so unmatching, clashing that they close to build an oxymoron... unfriendliness is beautiful ? rather intriguing, when you begin to seek the reasons… self defence [url=](example)[/url]; vanity, which prefers to assume that indifference is a latent form of unfriendliness ; self reflection, as hostile people live in a hostile world ; or just simply stupidity and ignorance, when one doesnt realize a smile can work wonder, or at least it does help to get better tips ;)

Every one follows its path without noticing others in the streets.

a friend from france visited us in the mid seventies in budapest. i took him to restaurants where he made a surprising observation about the waitresses. he liked that they did not look like servants, that they seemed to be independent individuals having strong self-confidence. the truth is that they were just rude, impolite, and did not like their job
