Ge-Rus Road Closed, Snow

I’m functional, determinedly.

But gradually, and suddenly

I hit the wall,

so as to say,

I crash,

maybe avalanche.

Душа

 

Wearily,

I haul my ass to bed,

content, at least,

I am another step closer

to enlightenment.

Musing on the nature of freedom and progress,

time and changes,

peace and prosperity,

he looks at the old washing machine his neighbors

in East Germany gave him,

a goodbye and goodwill present:

strange to you in hindsight,

ardent in intent.

Alas, dirt sticks.

Time and changes,

different system,

different connections,

pressure

like a headache:

the machine spins but doesn’t wash.

I’m not your wannabe Lenin

in Shushenskoye,

or elsewhere.

Please,

don’t bring me your problems.
