of mutual sorrows, hurts and pains.“

Not those that they applaud from theatre-boxes,
but those which make coffins break from bearers
and on their four oak legs walk right away.“

„Agitprop
sticks
in my teeth too,
and I'd rather
compose
romances for you –
more profit in it
and more charm.
But I
subdued
myself,
setting my heel
on the throat
of my own song.“

—  Vladimir Mayakovsky

„A rhyme's

a barrel of dynamite.
A line is a fuse
that's lit.
The line smoulders,
the rhyme explodes –
and by a stanza
a city
is blown to bits.“

for us
is no paradise of arbors —

love tells us, humming,

of the heart
has started to work
again.“

my verses at attention stand,
ready for death
and for immortal fame.“
