Есть нечто завораживающее в этом стихотворении, которая написала одна молодая лэди:

Furnished

* * *
Rent a room furnished
with an abyss,
furnished with an abyss.
It comes with the rent,
the abyss does.

I mean the damn thing does suck you up, doesn't it. Unless you wannabee Freudian with the damn verse, 'course. What's you take anyway?

Re:
As somebody who does not own a televison set, I ... would probably agree.

But I still like the atmosphere of that poem.

Yeah, yeah! me neither. It's damn hypothetical knowledge for me also. But those big screens at the pubs are 'nough to know the suckage effect, I'd say. The atmosphere... well I don't know. Is it smth. musical for you? The rythm m.b.?

Re:
No, just the atmosphere itself. The idea of what can be happening there. The exposition, as it were.

The whole thing is exposition, though, nothing more. I am not sure they use the term in English like they do in Russian, though, but I think I know what you mean. Well to be literary for a change (I just read what I wrote here, the style and all, damn yankees). It works for you probably because there is a collision between the ordinary (rent a room) and the supernatural (abyss), pretty common in XX century poetry. Nice pop though, shall we say.

Re:
Ах, это *Вы* начитались Бродского :-)

Та-та та-та благоухая мылом
И что-то там пустота вползла в еще одно
Отверстие, знакомящее с миром.

Мне "эти штучки" никогда в нем не нравились, у него как-то не получалось *это*.

Вы не поверите, но даже никакой мысли о Бродском не было. Я точно не помню откуда это (что-то возможно кроулианское), но существует как бы две матки: одна производящая и другая, черная, поглощающая, бездна, смерть (возможно). Снять комнату с видом на смерть. Почему бы и нет?

Re:
Да, это красиво.

И похоже. Смертельное там точно слышится.

А можно еще и сдать комнату с видом на смерть.
