Joseph Brodsky I Love You Poems

  • 1.
    From Martial
    Now is windy and the waves are cresting over
    Fall is soon to come to change the place entirely.
    Change of colors moves me, Postum, even stronger
  • 2.
    As you pour yourself a scotch
    Crush a roach or check your watch
    As your hands adjust your tie people die

  • 3.
    I said fate plays a game without a score,
