Listen! Early Poems: 1913-1928
Pocket Poets Number 47
Translated by Maria Enzensberger

Many of the poems in this book are translated for the first time into English. Accompanying the poems are rare drawings and lithographs by Mayakovsky and his circle, found in private collections of futurist books.

"what a poet

and the clear water is thick

with bloody blows on its head.

I embraced a cloud

But when I soared

it rained."

—Frank O'Hara, "Mayakovsky" (1954)
