YURI MILORAVA



Untitled 1


a secret screw
like pink sponginess
flowers
down below
turns of the road
noise
buffaloes by the water
a trail of coal and salt
a multitude of glass columns




Untitled 2


a motorway
with stacks of cracked
unwashed
—like small children in the vale—
and twisted
global
faces





Untitled 3


screwed in
shifted
inside the monogram of reproach
amid the noise
a concealed
message-door



Translated from the Russian by Anatoly Kudryavitsky
