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!
