“Savage, Nomad Hordes”
By Anatoly Marienhof
 
SAVAGE, nomad hordes
Of Asia
Poured fire out of the vats!
Razin’s execution is avenged,
And Pugachov’s pain        5
Whose beard was torn away.
Hooves
Have broken
The scruff of the earth,
Cold with centuries,        10
And the supernal sky, like a stocking
With a hole in its heel
Has been taken out of the laundry-trough
Wholly clean.
