Three Russian Poems of Ivan de Monbrison

My father is screaming
But I can’t hear anything.
The blue light of the morning,
The window is still open
A ghost comes
And goes into my bed,
And sleeps with me.

Crossed the time,
We drink the rest,
We forget everything.
The roots of the sky
They won’t go anywhere
but in themselves.

Empty sky.
He is still talking.
Empty words too.
I do not understand.
The bridge crossed,
On the other side,
There’s only light.

Мой отец кричит,
Но я ничего не слышу.
Синий свет утро,
Окно еще открыто,
Призрак приходит
И уходит в мою кровать,
И спит со мной.

Время пересёк,
Мы пьем остальное,
Все забываем.
Корни неба,
Они никуда не денется
Иначе сам в себе.

пустое небо.
он еще говорит.
пустые слова тоже.
я не понимаю.
мост пересёк,
в другой стороны,
только свет.
