Mayakovsky ll

YOU

You came –
determined,
because I was large,
because I was roaring,
but on close inspection
you saw a mere boy.
You seized
and snatched away my heart
and began
to play with it –
like a girl with a bouncing ball.
And before this miracle
every woman
was either a lady astounded
or a maiden inquiring:
“Love such a fellow?
Why, he'll pounce on you!
She must be a lion tamer,
a girl from the zoo!”
But I was triumphant.
I didn’t feel it –
the yoke!
Oblivious with joy,
I jumped
and leapt about, a bride-happy redskin,
I felt so elated
and light.

Mayakovsky

Lilichka.

Tobacco smoke has consumed the air.
The room
is a chapter in Kruchenykh’s inferno.
Remember -
beyond that window
in a frenzy
I first stroked your hands.
You sit here today
with an iron-clad heart.
One more day
you’ll toss me out,
perhaps, cursing.
In the dim front hall my arm,
broken by trembling won’t fit right away in my sleeve.
I’ll run out,
throw my body into the street.
I’ll rave,
wild,
lashed by despair.
Don’t let it happen
my dear,
my darling,
let us part now.
After all
my love
is a heavy weight
hanging on you
no matter where you go.
Let me bellow a final cry
of bitter, wounded grievance.
If you drive a bull to exhaustion
he will run away,
lay himself down in the cold waters.
Besides your love
I have
no ocean
and your love won’t grant even a tearful plea for rest.
When a tired elephant wants peace
he lies down regally in the firebound sand.
Besides your love
I have
no sun,
but I don’t even know where you are and with whom.
If you tortured a poet like this,
he
would berate his beloved for money and fame,
but for me
no sound is joyous
but the sound of your beloved name.
I won’t throw myself downstairs
or drink poison
nor can I put a gun to my head.
No blade
holds me transfixed
but your glance.
Tomorrow you’ll forget
that I have crowned you,
that I burned my flowering soul with love,
and the whirling carnival of trivial days
will ruffle the pages of my books…
Would the dry leaves of my words
force you to a stop
gasping for air?

At least let me
pave with a parting endearment
your retreating path.

GIRLS FROM OMSK SPRING/SUMMER 2011 CORNER AT MR EGO

Friday night we had a small event at Mr Ego store where we presented our new GIRLS FROM OMSK corner with the new spring/summer 2011 collection and also inaugurated the first stop of our OMSK ARMY photo project with Ulrike Biets. The photos portray some people we love and respect wearing our new collection.
Despite the horrible rain and frozen air we welcomed some lovely people at the opening. Geoffroy Gillieaux from ELLE BE, talented musicians STIJN, SOLDOUT and Bent from DAS POP popped in to say "privet" and had a glance at the photos where they were captured in wearing our spring/summer 2011 collection "GIRLS FROM OMSK GO TO KIEV". DJ's Bietnik & Blanche, our sexy OMSK soldiers for the night, played some cool tunes.
All in all a warm night!
Thank you, Julie and Nico from Mr Ego for your cooperation!
Next stop after that is Rewind Store in Ghent!!!! We will keep you posted about that.
X OMSK TEAM.
