Sample text

Mоскве, один, никого, слякоть в то время, ни записной книжки, ни телефона; кто звонил тебе и ты не слышал?

To feel it in my hands, and then light up a cigarette. ] | 37 Akseli Kajanto He следует особенно доверять поэтам в том, что, в отличие от людей, птицы бессмертны. Что, дескать, мы почти не находим их тел после того, как из воздуха они переходят в тусклые листья и ниже, к зернистым мгновениям нефти, слюде, где, отражаясь стократно в ступенях огня, плазмой стекают в разрывы зеркал, хотя тут-­то и западня для ума . . их вроде нет вовсе; поскольку—откуда лучится это отсутствие? Оно как излучение пылающих ангелов в слепоте.

It’s no longer possible to gather up all the empty bottles, the needles, thimbles, money . . nor understand where the light ray lies, where the steel thread stretching across the road, though undoubtedly it’s at the bus stop diagonally across the way, where the kiosk sours, like the sky. Like—well, all the rest pertains to the roof of the mouth, lifting within itself the complex and rather folded-­up material of nonexistence. A cocoon, darkness, and in stammering—lightning and exile. The 39th hexagram is nothing like this.
