T. Rex. Children of Rarn (Vadim Muratkhanov)

The black artist
is applying extraordinary colours
to a transparent plane.
Standing on tiptoe
he strains to reach higher.
What do you see in the picture?
Grandfather’s old carpet.
The same floral decoration,
the patterns’ sharp muzzles
but instead of the faded, threadbare pile
the colours burn with extraordinary fire.
If only he doesn’t turn round.

T. Rex. Children Of Rarn

Черный художник
на прозрачную плоскость
небывалые краски наносит.
Подымаясь на цыпочки,
силится дотянуться повыше.
Что узнаёшь в картине?
Дедовский старый ковер.
Те же цветки-завитки,
носатые морды узоров —
но вместо полинявшего, облысевшего ворса
краски горят небывалым огнем.
Только бы не обернулся.
