It may be that a better way

It may be that a better way

to conquer time and world

is to pass and not to leave a trace—

to pass, and not to leave a shadow

on the walls… To be, …

It may be that the better art

is with the hand of Bach

to leave the organ undisturbed—

to vanish, not to leave a cinder

for the urn … To be, but by deceit:

to strike yourself from latitudes.

to slip through time as through the sea

and not to break the waves.

Marina Tsvetaeva (1923)
