Karma (After Daniil Kharms)

Karma (After Daniil Kharms)
 
Towers
built of absolutes
fall backward in time
 
upon his poet pen,
hungry to create
starving in
 
Leningrad Prison No.1
for crazies.
His words found later
 
in a desk drawer
nourish a
theatre of the absurd.
 
Art not foiled
vaults
knocks towers
 
down again, again.
No room, you say,
for dissent now?
 
Don’t get any ideas
of surrendering.
Samizdat!
