Ginsberg-esque Winter Poem #2

 

Brain, n. An apparatus with which we think that we think.

— Ambrose Bierce, The Devil’s Dictionary

dark petals

winter withered

receive

mudluscious

raindrop

***

cold cobblestones

oozing

softly

shiny black

 

below the lights

***

***

 

lightbulb in a doorway

 

that bulb god gives

 

our feelings

to discover

***

p1050601.jpg

***

winter rain

caressing

intractable fools

 

their heads bent

 

careful to dodge

 

reflections of light

 

like love’s satanic glitter

***

***

winter

enters

 

the dollar bill’s fortunate soul

 

lovingly going past

 

my live wire’s leaping spirit

your driving search

for love

Still, I just can’t get enough of this eerie krautrock stuff:

And here’s a cute li’l retro Russian Christmas carol – The Christmas tree song:

“V lyesu rodilas yolochko”

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s081dTOC3yY&feature=related

 

If you’d like to sing along – here, zum Mitsingen:

 

 

V lyesu rodilas yolochka,

 

V lyesu ona rosla,

 

Zimoy I letom stroynaya,

 

Zelyonaya byla.

 

 

 


 

 

 

Metel’ ey pela pesenku

 

«Spi, yolochka, bai-bai!»

 

Moroz snezhkom ukutyval:

 

 

 

«Smotri, ne zamerzay!»

 

 

 


 

 

 

Trusishka zayka seren’kiy

 

Pod yolochkoy skakal

 

Poroyu volk, serdityi volk

 

Rys-tso-yu probegal

 

 

 


 

 

 

Chu! Sneg po lesu chastomu

 

Pod polozom skripit

 

Loshadka mokhno-nogaya

 

Toropitsa, bezhit

 

 

 


 

 

 

Vezet loshadka drovenki

 

A v drovnyah muzhichok

 

Srubil on nashu yolochku

 

Pod samyi koreshok

 

 

 


 

I vot ona naryadnaya

 

Na prazdnik k nam prishla
