The Friday poem – Voznesensky, by Sam Hunt

Voznesensky

 

Voznesensky

      meeting his girlfriend in the rain

 

is taking place tonight.

      There’s the same

 

telephone box, late fifties,

     Voznesensky & girlfriend

 

rooting like rattlesnakes.

     The whole world is shaking.

 

Voznesensky himself is

     shaking.

 

It must be love, he thought.

     Or a bad night.

 

Or good news

     breaking.
