If only I could cross out the memories.

If only memory could be tamed.

If it were possible night torment

turn into stone.

Take him around the corner of the house,

Hide near the basement

So that the soul does not stumble, does not fall.


If you could forgive and no longer be afraid

This Nervous Memory that wants you

And do not feel like the main one, among the clowns,

and do not rush in a dream in the middle of the night.


And do not hide your face behind empty palms

And do not torment your ears with a shrill whistle

And do not stand on a dirty empty platform

in search of meaning.


What could be worse than memories

Those from which you can not run away, do not hide

Those that you can’t forgive yourself, that you can’t grab with your hands

The ones you can’t get rid of


Those from which we poison ourselves with vodka

Those from which we breathe in cigarette smoke

Those from which our gaits stoop

And quatrains are born


Those from which we increasingly get up at night

We look out the window, spit poison into the curtains

Those from which pillowcases are torn to shreds

with a bang…


… Time does not heal, but teaches us to live, in short

Believe, forgive, endure, understand, etc.

And my memory is a plague kamikaze

Among the dots…


Elena Almazova
