Из американской поэзии. Переводы Андрея Харчевникова


from Mumbo Jumbo
by Ishmael Reed

Look at them! Just look at them!
throwing their hips this way, that
way while I, my muscles, stone,
the marrow of my spine, plaster, my
back supported by decorated paper,
stand here as goofy as a Dumb Dora
Lord, if I can't dance, No one shall.
