“Investigation — fear…”

Investigation –– fear
What broke us?
-–against drops, against walls.
Did we appear to anyone afterwards?
Only to you alone, oh God.
And You protect my hand
When I throw
millet of words.
And I will betray right away –– wait for me
at the embankment
on the shore
I’ll make sure
I escape
from them.
Translated from the Russian by Anna Halberstadt
