Twenty-first Century Russian Poetry


Natalya Reznik


Translated by Andrey Gritsman

I will stay with every sentence,
Every photo, every stroke.
Don't forget me all at once.
Don't you think that all is broke.
Think, that our fragile union
Couldn't be broken for the whole year.
You forget me by every letter-
This is a hard way to forget.
You forget me, though take longer.
But I'll bear another hundred
Years you as a little fragment
On the right, where there is no heart.
