Cadeaux #9

“Every great artist has the sense of provocation.”

– Arthur Cravan 







XVII. For George Orwell               


Death, peel off             

my ragged cast –! 

Your dawning             

brings the end of lies –             

an empty stage,              

a heap of bones.             









XVIII. For Andrei Tarkovsky            


Frozen kisses             

& a rusty bunch of keys            

drowning in slow motion.            

Blue narcoleptic shivers.          

Black birches in the mist. 







Scenes from Andrei Tarkovsky’s The Mirror (зeркалo), 1974
