Trafika Europe 13 - Russian Ballet

COUNTERDISENTANGLEMENT (selection) By Natalia Azarova Translated from the Russian by Ivan Sokolov with Peter Kolpakov

for rose ausländer

out of lands the stump looks brighter

we ride and ride along the borders now a sunflower turned away for the night now a specific formula of calligraphy

velocity wager like midges letters beyond the squares now off the scale


mirror carp soaked into peppers

fallen silent in five languages

liberals prefer stars dictators prefer the sun

crunch crunch crunch

the moon is vacant anew the moon’s outward mouths 57
