Haiku 15

(taking advantage of the late Thursday hours at the Asian Art Museum before the symphony)

Buddhas stuck inside
(Through the windows, noisy streets)
Serene in vitrines


Sobbing Russian tunes
Tone-deaf Russians whispering
Musical evenings

The San Francisco Russians really are the most godawful audiences at the San Francisco Symphony. Thanks for the poetic reminder.

To top it off, the ones behind me must have gone out to smoke at the intermission, because when they came back I had to smell them as well as listen to them. Yet another Vissi d'arte moment.
