Russian Translation of BBD
Russian translation of The Basketball Diaries
From The Basketball Diaries, Penguin Edition (1987), pages 140-41.
A note found on one of those little homework pads you cop for ten cents at Gussie's . . .
I wrote on an experience with L.S. D. a while ago:
"Little kids shoot
where the branches break the sun
into graceful shafts of
light . . .
I just want to be pure."
I found it all crumbled up
in these old pants in history class this morning.
Thanks to the translator for sharing this!
