Григорий Петников — поэт-футурист.PetnikovGrigory Petnikov - poet, futurist. & I are at the Tolstoy museum.
It was a crazy summer, when after a long captivity in the spare infantry regiment, sealed off from the other regiments by a barbed wire fence - at night we crowded round the fence and through the cemetery,through the lights of the city of the dead, See more
we looked at the lights of the city of the living, the distant city of Saratov - I experienced a real lack of space on trains, stuffed full of people alienated from the war, glorifying peace, spring and its gifts. I went there and back twice, on the road from Kharkov to Kiev, to Petersburg. What for? I myself do not know.
Tasks for the Chairman of the Earth:
The time tabling of the capitals. The transformation of weights and letters. The foretelling of the future. The measuring of work by the beat of the human heart. The death of all languages that resemble the bird’s claw (an unnecessary hangover from antiquity, the claw of times past). Man as a point in space and time.
While we support the war between the generations, we also know that age should be measured mentally and not physically. Thus we beseech you with a modest request: give us answer, following the dictates of your conscience, to the following question: are we capable of being virtuous members of the Government of the Earth or not? We plan to convene it in the nearest future.
We await your pleasure.
