the steps of madmen
weave the prints of rude crude words.“

of mutual sorrows, hurts and pains.“

the armies of my pages,
I shall inspect
the regiments in line.
Heavy as lead,

„Agitprop
sticks
in my teeth too,
and I'd rather
compose
romances for you –
more profit in it
and more charm.
But I
subdued
myself,
setting my heel
on the throat
of my own song.“

—  Vladimir Mayakovsky

„A rhyme's

a barrel of dynamite.
A line is a fuse
that's lit.
The line smoulders,
the rhyme explodes –
and by a stanza
a city
is blown to bits.“

—  Vladimir Mayakovsky

"A Conversation with the Inspector of Taxes about Poetry" (1926); translation from Chris Jenks Visual Culture (London: Routledge, 1995) pp. 86-7

Not those that they applaud from theatre-boxes,

and on their four oak legs walk right away.“

„Love
for us
is no paradise of arbors —
to us
love tells us, humming,
that the stalled motor
of the heart
has started to work
again.“
