2 poems || Nikolai Oleynikow

translated from Russian to English by Volodymyr Bilyk

1

In flat there were
forty-four
forty-four
puny siskins:
Siskin - alcoholic
Siskin - paranoid
Siskin - schizo
Siskin - sham
Siskin - paralyzed
Siskin - with syphilis
Siskin - in marasmus
Siskin - an idiot
2
If you'll eat the candy called "Urchin" in the morning
You're gonna die in the evening
