Citations Vladimir Maïakovski

„In parade deploying
the armies of my pages,
I shall inspect
the regiments in line.
Heavy as lead,
my verses at attention stand,
ready for death
and for immortal fame.“

„A rhyme's

a barrel of dynamite.
A line is a fuse
that's lit.
The line smoulders,
the rhyme explodes –
and by a stanza
a city
is blown to bits.“

but if I fail to be understood –

I shall pass through my native land
to one side,
like a shower
of slanting rain.“

and on their four oak legs walk right away.“

„Agitprop
sticks
in my teeth too,
and I'd rather
compose
romances for you –
more profit in it
and more charm.
But I

myself,
setting my heel
on the throat
of my own song.“

Up heads! As proud peaks be seen!
In the second flood we are spreading
Every city on earth will be clean.“
