Panel Star of poetry in Dushanbe.

Trip to Dushanbe.

“There is not a single tooth in the mouth.
They have faded for a long time.
But the teeth were the lights in my golden days.
Like silver, like pearls, they sparkled then,
Like pearls of rain, like a bright morning star.
But they fell out, crumbled, gaping with a failure of the mouth,
Or is this the wrath of Saturn and the vengeful account of time?
No, this is not the fury of Saturn, not the revenge of the protracted years.
So what?
Hear the truth: that is the covenant of the eternal gods.
Our world revolves forever, its nature is
Such is the law of the universe: the cycle of nature.
The medicine calms the pain, it heals the disease,
ut it will become a source of pain, which is given to us as a medicine."
