Behold!

it’s for you, name omitted…

a word-plyer, a liar, a gulper of bright, measly tears,

an adorer of Ingres, of clangoring streetcars, of asphodels’ slumbers,

a white-fanged little snake in the tarpaulin-boot colonnade of gendarmes in full gear,

a monogamous heart and a torso of countless bedchambers—

may you lie, as though wrapped in an Orenburg shawl, in our dry, brownish mud,

you, a tramper through hell and high water and the meaningless sentence,

who took life like a bumblebee touching a sun-heated bud

but instead froze to death in the Third Rome’s cold-piss-reeking entrance.

from “To a Friend: In Memoriam” by Joesph Brodsky, written in 1973 about Sergei Chudakov who he’d heard froze to death in a Moscow doorway but apparently was still around. Ha!
