Try thinking before dawn about the future:

I guarantee you will not succeed

to extricate yourself from your own strictness

while Goncharova’s sleep can still disturb you

and Gogol’s unread letters are addressed to you.

Ilya Gutner

Ilya Gutner was born in the Soviet Union in Moscow and grew up in New York. Was for a time a PhD student in Slavic Studies at Brown but that soon ceased to be an option. Studies philosophy now in Shanghai, China. Google services make not of one small set of things published with the Ottoman Estate under a collective title, Poem about how to live; something quite childish for Boston University's Clarion magazine; and a long silence gathering up  things to say since then.
