Budapest’s Mobile Symphony: Poem

August 22, 2014 by in Blog

 

sharp suits, well shined shoes

important meet of VIPS

generals

civilians

bankers

and me

gathered

in the Parliament building

diased speakers

clicking on microphones

filled the chamber

with important

people speak

world co-ordinated

synchronised

mobile symphony

day

tuned to classic

sounds, wake the sleeping

spoil the mood

of restaurants

films

theatre

nights

incandescent noise

ear drums burst

to capacity

of rude awakenings

not waited

precision arranged

planned, co-ordinated

advance guard

of music orchestration

as the

second hand ticks

close

to midday the phones

begin

the first dozen

the second dozen

then

cac

a

phony

of tunes discordant

Beethoven

Mozart

Vivaldi

Rossini

melange for

thirty seconds disruption

bursts

on the solemnity

of imposted delegates

world matters

impaled on notes

of music

to an

anarchists ears

world day

for mobile

symphony
