    Along a parabola life like a rocket flies,
    Mainly in darkness, now and then on a rainbow.

    The urge to kill, like the urge to beget,
    Is blind and sinister. Its craving is set
    Today on the flesh of a hare: tomorrow it can
    Howl the same way for the flesh of a man.
    —Andrei Voznesensky (b. 1933)
