A. Kuleshev (Translated from Russian by G. K. G. Joshi)



Translated from Russian by G. K. G. Joshi

I am your prisoner, and you my prison.
By your love I’m sentenced rigourously.
In vain my term ofimprisonment.
Attractive to others,
You yourself hasten to reduce...
In vain, you watch man...
Doubly diminish,
Intentionally injurious,
Not concealing
A senseless judgment
So funny foreseen by you.
And I run away from custody...
Nevertheless I will roar in chains.
I stroll to perform through painting,
Starve and sit
In the detection house.
You deprive me
Of incompetent words.
Wholly dictating, my fate, my judge,
You selected me …
Your prisoner.
Permanently for life.
