Time in the Throat Slips Together like a Lump

Adolf P. Shvedchikov – TRANSCEND Media Service

Time in the throat slips together like a lump,
There is no way to shout anymore:
Where are we, between Gomorrah-Sodom?
People, hear, stop being silent!
How deceitful speeches became disgusting,
It is enough to go to bow to Devil,
A lot of people ate a lot of buckshot,
My heart never stops moaning!
Will light break through clouds of distrust,
Or the night falls on the ground,
Where are you, poets, are you ready to take pen in hand,
Or nothing can help us?
