Could you guess today, damnation, What comes tomorrow into our skulls?! I for instance collect lighters, Now and Sevka began to torture tortoises. My friend Kolka is interested in Irina, My friend Yurka is enthused about riding, My friend Vitka spends days under the motor-car, My friend Lovka goes in summer with a beard. If I begin loafing, become listless - I give away my lighters in no time, Or I may simply throw them away Or light them all at the same time.
Elisabeth Jelinek. Translation, 2018
