Той, хто вежу стварае, сарвецца
Будзе лёт той страшэнным, на дне
Ў самай бездані ён апынецца
І вар'яцтва сваё пракляне.

Той, хто нішчыць, расьціснуты лёсам
Будзе енчыць, прыйшоўшы ў тупік,
І, пакінуты ўсімі, Нябёсам
Накіруе пакутлівы крык.

Той, хто прыйдзе ў пячоры начныя,
Да затокаў ракі, у лясах
Стрэне зрэнкі пантэры, якія
Наганяюць мітрэнгу ды жах.

Не схавацца, няма паратунку
Ад таго, што рыхтуе нам Лёс
Толькі права на ўласную думку
Не залежыць ад волі Нябёс.

The Word

Then, when God bent His face / over the shining new world, then / they stopped the sun with a word, / a word burned cities to the ground. / / When a word floated across the sky / like a rose-colored flame / eagles closed their wings, frightened / stars shrank against the moon. / ...

The Master Artists’ Prayer

I remember an ancient artists’ prayer: / Keep us, Lord, from students / / Who push our wretched genius / toward the blasphemy of new revelations. / / Honest and open enemies we can deal with, / but this kind hangs in our footsteps / / And smiles, and laughs, as we fight - ...


Snakes shed their skins / and their souls grow mellow. / We do it differently, we change / souls, not bodies. / / Like an Amazon, Memory leads life / like a horse on a rope: / Tell me, Memory, who lived / in this body before I came. / / The first one: homely, thin, / loving o...

The Forest

White trunks / were stark, suddenly, against the haze, / / Roots wound up out of the ground / like corpses’ arms. / / The leaves’ bright fire / hid giants, dwarves, lions; / / Fishermen saw in the sand / the print of a six-fingered hand. / / No French noble, n...


Early one morning / in Broseliana / a happy shepherd / drove his flock to the valley. / / They grazed, and he / piped out his happiness / on a reed / pipe. / / And suddenly, there in the branches, / he heard a voice, not a bird-call, / and saw a flame-red / bird with a ti...

The Sixth Sense

Fine is the wine that loves us, / and the bread baked for our sake, / and the woman who lies and loves us / when she’s finished her tweaking games. / / But sunset clouds, rose / in a sky turned cold, / calm like some other earth? / immortal poems? / / All inedible, non-po...
