Жираф

Today what I see is the glance of yours so very sad
And arms ‘round lap are so specially lean...you kno’ what
Just listen: so far, truly far, on the lake known as (T)chad
Roams courtly a camelopard.

What’s given to him? That’s the grace and a bliss in a tune
It’s pattern of hide is just right from the fabulous tales
No Thing can though venture to rival its charms but the Moon
When parted and swayed with the waters of spacious lakes.

Now see from the distance it looks as flamboyant ship’s sails
The cheerful bird’s flight can be matched with the smoothness of ways
I know that for many a reason this wonder unveils
At dawns when it hides in the marble of the caves.

I know some vivacious narrations of magic — full lands:
A maiden of ebony skin and the tribal chief’s claims
But close air you breathed in was heavy to take for that long
Therefore no belief in your mind in the thing but the rains.

So how me supposed to be telling of torrid orchards
Of orderly palm trees and scent of unearthly herb stuff
You crying? Just listen... Far off on the lake of the (T)chad
Exquisite-ly roams a giraffe.

Recollection

Out at sea, at noon, / sparks dance and the sun glows, / and the bird that's flown too far / sobs with speechless eyes. / / The green sea lured her out, / covered her eyes with mist, / and now she must fly and fly / to the end, high over the silent sea. / / Whimsical whirlwinds...

The Rat

The icon candle flickers, small, / the half-dark nursery is horribly quiet. / The frightened child / hides in the pink lace bed. / / What's that? The house spirit coughing? / He lives there, he's little, he's bald... / Agh! A vicious rat creeps slowly / from behind the wardrobe. / ...

The Choice

He who builds the tower will fall. / He will fall straight down, terribly, / and at the deep bottom of the world's well / he will curse himself for his madness. / / He who pulls the tower down will be crushed, / flattened by stone shards; / and left to lie there, by All-Seeing God, / ...

Beyond the Grave

There's a secret cavern, deep in the earth, / filled with stately tombs, / Lucifer's fiery dreams. / Beautiful whores slink between them. / / Whether you die proud or ashamed / a gloomy old man, a bony old man, / a boring, sluggish workman - Death - / will come and stare at you impe...

The Founders

Romulus and Remus went up a hill, / a wild and silent hill. / Said Romulus, "Here there'll be a city. / Said Remus, "A city like the sun." / / Said Romulus, "We found our ancient honor / by grace of the stars." / Said Remus, "The past is dead, / let it ...

The Giraffe

You are sadder, today: I can see. / And your arms, wrapped around your knees, are thinner. / But listen: far far away, near Lake Chad, / a delicate giraffe grazes up and down. / / He is blessed with sinuous beauty and with happiness, / and his hide is stamped with a magic design / tha...
