    Marxism-Leninism and a Mouse

    I remember in the 80’s in Moscow
    I was standing in my kitchen
    With a book of Marxism-Leninism in my hands
    Just slammed shut in indignation –
    It was not a very thick book
    Probably Friedrich Engels

    At that very moment a small mouse
    Ran out from under the cupboard
    A rare guest in our apartment
    At those scarce times of stagnation

    In a bout of a hunter’s passion,
    Still heated by my reading
    I hurled the book flatly as a disk
    Setting it in rotation
    By both hands without swinging
    Without moving my body

    Oh how I was proud about the hurl,
    That struck the animal
    Even having hidden itself
    Under the kitchen closet
    With the book flying obliquely
    Like a circular saw

    I pulled the mouse out by the tail,
    Still convulsing with the broken back,
    Looking at it for a long time
    And then dropped it into the garbage

    For many years I felt good
    About a beautiful throw of rare precision
    Such things don’t happen every day
    And not to everybody

    Having received another confirmation of my strength
    And my ability to concentrate at the right moment
    Soon I left that country forever
    And my self-confidence
    Was very helpful to me then

    And only now
    After so many years of living in the West
    Suddenly I have realized that in that episode
    I was merely a blind weapon
    Of the things I was forced to study
    Against my will –
    Because only those superior forces
    Could lend such a strength and precision to a throw

    And the killed little mouse was then
    Only a small insignificant link
    In the multi-million chain of innocent victims
    Already coming to an end at those times of stagnation
    Before the collapse
