Drowning in time

 

 

time…

the unseen river

 

into which we fall

and rush along

 

till we can’t keep

our heads above water

 

finally going under

one last time

 

sinking to the bottom

remaining there

 

while the river flows on

and on

 

 

 

 

 

 

Thank You, Constance Garnett

 

 

I remember the first time I read

“Notes From Underground,” how it

spoke to me as nothing else ever had;

how I felt suddenly connected with

a kindred spirit; how Dostoevsky

gave words to feelings I had never

before been able to express; how I

hung on the significance of every

phrase; how he seemed to understand

me, and I understand him; how he

taught me to laugh, to cry, to beat

the wall, but only in the Constance

Garnett translation.
