Previous Entry Add to Memories Tell A Friend Next Entry

I am condemned to impotently parrot
Lines rhyming love with blood, or worse, with carrot,
While life, of all vocabulary vast,
Rhymes with rebuke and funeral repast.

Yet foster I cannot a predilection
For rhyming love with heavenly direction,
A dress accessory, a push, a soap-slash-bird,
Or worst, a preposition long deferred.

And thus I mold for no apparent reason,
Indifferent to change of tongue and season
Around me, away from reading eyes,
A distant language that, beyond surmise,

Rhymes river with ennui and sea with grief,
And death with exhortation to belief.

Что есть перевод? На блюде
Бледная, сияющая голова поэта,
Хриплый крик попугая, лопотание обезьяны
И профанация мертвых.
