MARCH 2012: when the horses die

Когда умирают кони – дышат,
Когда умирают травы – сохнут,
Когда умирают солнца – они гаснут,
Когда умирают люди – поют песни.

When horses die, they sniff
When grasses die, they wither
When suns die, they fade away
When people die, they sing songs
- Velimir Chlebnikov

An apocalypse is near. Four little people stand between the futile hope for better and a wild cheering for all that’s empty and gone. They talk. They search for what will comfort them. A dying horse, maybe; and staring at the beauty of that ending, together. Until a wall falls down. Until the veil is ripped.
