I Sit By The Window

12 Jun 2004 /

A loyal subject of these second-rate years,
I proudly admit that my finest ideas
are second-rate, and may the future take them
as trophies of my struggle against suffocation.
I sit in the dark. And it would be hard to figure out
which is worse; the dark inside, or the darkness out.

— Joseph Brodsky, “I Sit By The Window”
