And so I live
And so I live with cobwebs and ficuses,
dictionaries, comic strips, and a heart
which taps at the outskirts of night
It smells of gas and ferment.
Obliquely across the pavement,
Vans: oblique letters,
red teats on the underbelly.
On The Sixth Floor (Mažvydas Library)
An elevator, murmuring quietly,
Lifts us into a sky of books.
Eyes closed, you twist your hair around your finger:
Slumber is a soft and warm cocoon.
Yo! Wind tore off the door.
Ah, a car, in snow.
Blue evening light,
beginning of Winter.
City Of Mercury
The road happened to be boggy.
Cars drove by, splashing mud and light.
Below us loomed the blue city of mercury.
Tin and water rusted in its twilight.
