alles wegen dir
She's imperfect, but she tries
She is good, but she lies
She is hard on herself
She is broken and won't ask for help
She is messy, but she's kind
She is lonely most of the time
She is all of this mixed up and baked in a beautiful pie

Litany in which Certain Things are Crossed Out

alles wegen dir
So maybe I wanted to give you something more than a catalog
of non-definitive acts,
something other than the desperation.
Dear So-and-So, I’m sorry I couldn’t come to your party.
Dear So-and-So, I’m sorry I came to your party
and seduced you
and left you bruised and ruined, you poor sad thing.
You want a better story. Who wouldn’t?
A forest, then. Beautiful trees. And a lady singing.
Love on the water, love underwater, love, love and so on.

— — —

Who am I? I’m just a writer. I write things down.
I walk through your dreams and invent the future. Sure,
I sink the boat of love, but that comes later. And yes, I swallow
glass, but that comes later.

— — —

Okay, so I’m the dragon. Big deal.
You still get to be the hero.
You get magic gloves! A fish that talks! You get eyes like flashlights!
What more do you want?
I make you pancakes, I take you hunting, I talk to you as if you’re
really there.
Are you there, sweetheart? Do you know me? Is this microphone live?
Let me do it right for once,
for the record, let me make a thing of cream and stars that becomes,
you know the story, simply heaven.

— — —

Actually, you said Love, for you,
is larger than the usual romantic love. It’s like a religion. It’s
terrifying. No one
will ever want to sleep with you.

Okay, if you’re so great, you do it—
here’s the pencil, make it work . . .

— — —

The entire history of human desire takes about seventy minutes to tell.
Unfortunately, we don’t have that kind of time.

— — —

I want more applesauce. I want more seats reserved for heroes.
Dear Forgiveness, I saved a plate for you.
Quit milling around the yard and come inside.

alles wegen dir
Будь, пожалуйста,
И тогда подарю тебе я
И тогда я вымахну –
стану особенным.

Из горящего дома вынесу
Я решусь на все неизвестное,
на все безрассудное –
в море брошусь,
и спасу тебя!..

Это будет сердцем велено мне,
Но ведь ты же
сильнее меня,
и уверенней!

Ты сама
готова спасти других
от уныния тяжкого,
ты сама не боишься
ни свиста пурги,
ни огня хрустящего.
Не заблудишься,
не утонешь,
не накопишь
Не заплачешь
и не застонешь,
если захочешь.
Станешь плавной
и станешь ветреной,
если захочешь...

Мне с тобою –
такой уверенной –
Хоть нарочно,
хоть на мгновенье –
я прошу,
робея, –
помоги мне
в себя поверить,

(Роберт Рождественский.)

"To love me is like to love a haunted house: it's fun to visit once a year, but no one wants to live there."

Мы все потеpяли что-то
На этой безумной войне...
Кстати, где твои кpылья,
Котоpые нpавились мне?

September Song

born 19.6.32 - deported 24.9.42

Undesirable you may have been, untouchable
you were not. Not forgotten
or passed over at the proper time.

As estimated, you died. Things marched,
sufficient, to that end.
Just so much Zyklon and leather, patented
terror, so many routine cries.

(I have made
an elegy for myself it
is true)

September fattens on vines. Roses
flake from the wall. The smoke
of harmless fires drifts to my eyes.

This is plenty. This is more than enough.

(Geoffrey Hill)
