Holy Friday Lamentations
يا يسوع الحياة - فيروز
No. Why do you ask?
because I had to pay 5 bills at once I’m going to keep living on potatoes until may, so
my feelings lately are
- potatoes are cool
- share your Easter basket with me
- increased alienation
I’ve always liked Mayakovsky. He is a sort of continuation of Dostoievsky. Or rather, he’s a Dostoievsky character writing lyrical poems—one of his young rebels, the ‘Raw Youth’ or Hippolyte or Raskolnikov. What an all-devouring poetic energy! And his way of saying a thing once and for all, uncompromisingly, straight from the shoulder! And above all, with what daring he flings all this in the face of society and beyond, into space!
― Boris Pasternak, Doctor Zhivago (via mayakovsky)
