The Dream

Сон

My nightmare woke me, groaning
with the most intense pain.
My dream: that you loved someone else
and he had hurt you.

I ran out of bed
like a murderer from the guillotine,
and saw how the streetlights
shone dim, like animals’ eyes.

Oh, no one, no one
could have wandered, that night,
so homeless, so alone, down dark streets
that were like the beds of dried-up rivers.

I’m standing in front of your door,
I’ve no other path,
but I know I can never
open that door.

He hurt you, I know;
I dreamed it, but the dream was true.
And all the same I lie dying
beneath your closed window.

Cain’s Descendants

He didn’t deceive us, that sad, somber spirit / Who wears the morning star as pseudonym / And said: "Shun not the highest gain, nor fear it: / Taste of the fruit and you will equal Him." / / Instantly, for the youth, all roads lay open, / And for old men, all mysteries to know, / ...

The Worker

He’s standing there, beside the glowing furnace, / A small man, probably older than you’d think. / His gaze is peaceful, seems almost submissive / From the way his reddened eyelids blink. / / All his workmates have knocked off - they’re sleeping / But he’s still ...

The Lost Tram

I was walking an obscure route / And abruptly I heard caws of crows, / A distant thunder and a tinkling lute: / A rushing tram was really close. / / How I leapt to its step / Is still a mystery to me. / It left a fiery track beyond itself / Which even in the daylight I could see. ...

The Word

That day when over world newborn / God would reveal his face / Sun could be stopped by word alone / Word could destroy a place / / Hawks dared not to strike their wings / The stars drew closer to the Moon / When as aurora in the skies / A word would drift along / / A number was...

I trusted, I thought and the light for me shone at last. / For ever Creator let fate have my soul, forever. / I am sold and alone! My god went away so fast. / My buyer is looking at me - he is mocking and clever. / / My Yesterday rushes at me like a big flying hill / And like an abyss b...

Giraffe

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 ...
