Haiku #137 (Obscuring Stendhal Syndrome)

Paintings are windows
To other worlds. You can see
Horses, lovers, cats,

The rise and fall of
Empires, or howling seas.
But- you can only

Witness these paintings
whEN PEOPLE STOP STANDING IN
FRONT OF YOU AND BLOCK

YOUR VIEW WITH THEIR BIG
HEADS AND THEIR HIGH-PITCHED QUASI-

INTELLECTUAL
CONVERSATION, RIGHT THERE IN
YOUR PERSONAL SPACE.
