EXCEPT YOU…
 
I tore all your photos.
But it did not help. I remembered you.
I went very far and never came back.
But it did not help I remembered you.
I met with others and was loved.
But it did not help. I remembered you.
I got drunk – like dead, like a shoemaker, like a tramp, like the last creature.
But it did not help. I remembered you.
I got married, had children, became home-grown.
But it did not help. I remembered you.
I’m getting old. Everything is eroding from memory.
Everything. Except you.
 
 
RAZOR EDGE
 
This edge is unsafe,
Don ‘t walk on it, don ‘t joke.
Anything will cut like oil,
And alive won ‘t let you get off.
Maybe you will believe in someone,
You ‘re going for something:
Brother, this is not your problems,
There’s nothing at the finish line.
And no one will appreciate this move.
And no one will pop up about you.
No luck, no fame, no money –
Nothing but trouble .
But, alas, no curse , no prayer
Unable to turn him away…
He steps on the razor blade,
And the shining path continues to shine.
Oh, lovely, warm sea!
No wind, no waves.
On the whole aboveground space
No cloud buoys visible,
Only islands of dark greens
With a strip of sand at the water
Yes crabs suffering from idleness,
And traces of escaped lizards
As in the endless summer I enter
Into the still waters of silence,
And glare of elastic light
Runs away from me on the bottom of the sea.
 
 
BLIND RAIN
 
A small blind rain was walking in the sky above the earth,
Tripped and started falling somewhere down his head.
He was short and shallow like morning dew.
Ah, how the happy voices laugh at him!..
But all this was so was so fleeting and did not affect his attention,
When he recognized the ground by touching her and became a stream for her.
