Anatoly Kudryavitsky



So you want to be me, and I you.
You fancy wearing a tight Tyrolean hat
of wisdom, and I a green-eyed
night shawl. You sigh for living
inside two languages, and I
for having a native soil. You wish
to teach surrealism to a herd of rhinoceroses,
and I to ring my mobile from a phone booth
and listen to my loneliness breathing.
