Things and people we
surround. and this,
and those tormented eyes.
It is better to live in the dark.

I'm sitting on the bench
in the park, looking vosled
running family.
I loathed light.

This January. Winter
according to the calendar.
When darkness oprotiveet,
Then I talk.

It's time. I'm ready to start.
Never mind, why. Open
mouth. I can remain silent.
But it is better to talk to me.

About what? On the days, at night.
Or - nothing.
Or things.
About things, instead of

people. they will die.
Everything. I, too, will die.
It's fruitless labor.
How to write in the wind.

My blood cold.

Я не люблю людей.

their appearance is not for me.
Their faces grafted

Something in their faces there,
that is contrary to the mind.
What does the flattery

externally. And if INEC
in them - both inside insides.

Inside objects - the dust.

Awkward hand.

Dust. And the lights
only light up the dust.
Even if the subject

In the depths of the darkness of the cupboard.

dust does not erase. Herself
thing, usually, dust

not endeavor to overcome,
It does not bother eyebrow.
For dust - this flesh
time; flesh and blood.

Lately I
I am sleeping in broad daylight.
Видимо, my death

tray, even breathe,
I mirror to her mouth,
I bear
oblivion to light.

January motionless. Two

Venoznaya blue

The thing you should not. And not

Thing is, the space, out

Mother says Christ:
- You are my son, or my God?
You nailed to the cross.
How can I go home?

How to set foot on the threshold,
not understanding, undecided:
you are my son or God?
I.e, dead or alive?

He says in response:
- Dead or Alive,
difference, woman, not.
Son or God, I am yours.
