Andrey Voznesensky
I am Goya
of the bare field, by the enemy's beak gouged
till the craters of my eyes gape
I am grief
I am the tongue
of war, the embers of cities
on the snows of the year 1941
I am hunger.
Voznesensky quotes
I have hurled westward the ashes of the uninvited guest!
and hammered stars into the unforgetting sky like nails
I am Goya.
Along a parabola life like a rocket flies,
Mainly in darkness, now and then on a rainbow.

Voznesensky Andrey quotes
It's shameful to spot a lie and not to name it,
shameful to name it and then to shut your eyes,
shameful to call a funeral a wedding
and play the fool at funerals besides.
Voznesensky Andrey
The urge to kill, like the urge to beget,
Is blind and sinister. Its craving is set
Today on the flesh of a hare: tomorrow it can
Howl the same way for the flesh of a man.
Andrey Voznesensky quotes
Everything's sliding apart.
Yet, "Long live everything!"
For the art of creation
Is older than the art of killing.
