Vera Anatolyevna Pavlova: [Loneliness in the window square...] ([Одиночество в квадрате окна...] in English)

Portre of Vera Anatolyevna Pavlova
Portre of Kneller, Andrey

Back to the translator

[Одиночество в квадрате окна...] (Russian)

Одиночество в квадрате окна,
одиночество в кубе комнаты,
когда хочешь остаться одна
и серьезно обдумать, какого ты
черта лысого, хрена, рожна
к этой местности взглядом прикована,
будто это — чужая страна,
а родная — о, как далеко она!..

[Loneliness in the window square...] (English)

Loneliness in the window square,
Loneliness in the cube of the room,
When, alone, with nobody there,
You want to sit and ponder in gloom
What here attracted your gaze,
By what bloody demon’s insistence, 
As though, this is – a foreign place,
But the homeland is - oh, so distant!
