Night, street, lamp, pharmacy

Night, street, lamp, pharmacy

– Alexander Blok (1880-1921)

Night, street, lamp, pharmacy,

A dull and meaningless light.

Go on and live another quarter

century-

Nothing will change. There’s no

way out.

You’ll die, then start from the

beginning,

It will repeat, just like before;

Night, icy ripples on a canal,

Pharmacy, street, lamp.
