full life

(no subject)

From the NYC Transit system:

My neighbor's musical instrument of choice is the door
at first I thought it a major nuisance
and then I saw it was really part
of a kind of percussion sonata
and the aggravation dissolved: now I observe
how skilled this soloist is in his entrance and exit

Aharon Shabtai (b. 1939)
