Frenk O’Hara: „Majakovski“ (odlomak)

Frank O'Hara

Jedna od mojih omiljenih serija je Mad Men. Na kraju prve sezone Don Drejper čita ove stihove. Oni su pripadali pesniku Frenku O’Hari, u pitanju je odlomak iz njegove poeme Majakovski.

Now I am quietly waiting for
the catastrophe of my personality
to seem beautiful again,
and interesting, and modern.
The country is grey and
brown and white in trees,
snows and skies of laughter
always diminishing, less funny
not just darker, not just grey.
It may be the coldest day of
the year, what does he think of

that? I mean, what do I? And if I do,
perhaps I am myself again.
