* * *

Habitual emergency is in the house,

In the kitchen, it sizzles, hisses ...

But the schedule of my quirks

Prophesies the coming peak...

And I console myself with the power

Over the verse and over the fate,

While the pencil and eraser are

With me.



* * *

Привычно авралю в доме,

На кухне шкворчит, шипит…

Но график моих закидонов

Пророчит грядущий пик…

И я утешаюсь властью

Над строчкой и над судьбой,

Пока карандаш и ластик –

С собой.



* * *

Doing the Sisyphean labor,

Even stupid things, perhaps,

It’s the doom to build a House

From a fire

to a fire.


 * * *

За Сизифовым трудом,

Даже глупостью, пожалуй, –

Обречённость строить Дом

От пожара

                    до пожара.


* * *

Azalea confused the seasons –

Changed January to July.

But only this deceptive comfort

Is akin to perestroika.


To change fates, places?

After all, they think, whoever passed,

That in the house with such flowers,

Probably everything is fine...


 * * *

Азалия спутала сроки –

Сменила январь на июль.

Да только сродни перестройке

Обманчивый этот уют.


Судьбой поменяться, местами?

Ведь думают, кто б ни прошел,

Что в доме с такими цветами,

Наверное, все хорошо…
