Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet…

Одиноко-незрячее солнце смотрело на страны...

Unperturbed and indifferent sun contemplated the planet
There all was infested with terror and eaten by rot,
There rocks in the distance appeared a huge shaggy dog,
There black boiling copper spewed out collapsing volcanoes.
Was the night of the world.
Unexpectedly rolled in the sky a nefarious shade,
And the comets that hunted like wolves, menacing and brutal,
And collided together, teeth bared and dripping raw fuel,
Spun around and nervously howled saluting the day.
Was the fearful waiting.
In a crown of thorns, and her forehead bejewelled with blood,
Came a girl, thin and tenderly pale in blue light of the morrow,
And the wasteland of earth with a silverblade plough she cut.
She was given a name by the cast of the planets: The Sorrow.
And this was the Redemption.

Lake Chad

On mysterious Lake Chad / Among the ancient baobabs / Guided by majestic Arabs / The carved-out feluccas scud / Among the trees along the banks / And from foothills spread with green, / To terrible gods, the maidens chant, / Priestesses with ebony skin. / / I was the wife of a mig...

The Tale of the Kings

"We are the splendid and strong, / Youthful kings, who glide, / Like clouds high in the sky, / Above the mirage of the lands. / / With eternal songs and dances / We erect a new temple. / Let us be drunk with the purple / That surely will stream from its windows. / / A window to...


In barren halls and secluded corridors / Today merry maskers were amassing, / Today in parlors, variegated colors / Like mad whirlwinds, swept through, dancing. / / They snaked about beneath dragons and moons, / Chinese vases were tossed among them, / Torches flamed and lutes strings ...
