Joseph Brodsky Water 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.
    Citizen, enemy, mama's boy, sucker, utter
    garbage, panhandler, swine, refujew, verrucht;
    a scalp so often scalded with boiling water
    that the puny brain feels completely cooked.
  • 3.
    A list of some observation. In a corner, it's warm.
    A glance leaves an imprint on anything it's dwelt on.

    the tear could be mine, chin-bound.
  • 5.

    The Trojan War
    is over now; I don't recall who won it.
    The Greeks, no doubt, for only they would leave
  • 6.
    I have braved, for want of wild beasts, steel cages,
    carved my term and nickname on bunks and rafters,
    lived by the sea, flashed aces in an oasis,
    dined with the-devil-knows-whom, in tails, on truffles.

'Twould supersede the Heaven-
A few-and they by Risk-procure-
So this Sort-are not given-

Except as stimulants-in
