Sunil, 'Coolie No. 2', Oil on unstretched canvas, 88" X 72"

I know the truth! by Marina Tsvetaeva

I know the truth! All other truths - out of my sight!
There is no cause for us to hold these fights and battles!
Just take a look: there’s evening, look: there’s night.
Why do we fight - o poets, lovers, and commanders?

The grass is dewy and the wind has settled down,
And soon, the vortex of the stars will stop,
And we shall all sleep with our foes below the ground,
Though on this earth, we kept each other up.
