Embrace The Dream… (aka Mile Marker #753)

Posted: 2016-12-22 in ©ddr7hd, Да, я понимаю, Ich träumte von..., Polina, Samizdat

I stare at the wall until it becomes too much.

Then I shut my eyes.

I deliberately deep breathe, a certain rhythm.

I fall asleep.

After a while, I dream.

This is special, this place,

the only one left in all of Russia,

you must embrace the tradition,

the way,

if you are to get any benefit,

so they say…

Strip naked

and smear yourself with the greasy solution

(you need it for protection),

then wait for a booth,

get in,

shut the door,

and, in darkness, alone,

embrace the corrosive steam,

no one will hear you if you scream,

but endure,



embrace the dream,

and you will come out better,


ready to go



we must try.
