Поколение битников. Переводы Алексея Караковского


the girls

I have been looking at the same lampshade for
5 years
and it has gathered a bachelor's dust and
the girls who enter here are too busy to clean it
but I don't mind
I have been too
busy
to notice
until now
that the light
shines
badly
        through
        5 years'
        worth.
