Written by Vladas Braziūas

Translated from the Lithuanian by Jonas Zdanys 

Narrated by Bill Wolak


I would like to write in the empty 

spaces of my drawings 

the margins of my symphonies 

on my cathedrals’ walls 

pediments, altars, pulpits 

my sermons would be marketable 

to deaf mutes 


most of all I would like to write 

on our developing skin 

on our thighs and hips 

on our gurgling stomach 


and in fact that’s how I write 

only the prepositions aren’t the ones 

sometimes and the declensions
