Sheet Music: Score
To the enemy / Katia Tiutiunnik ; text: Eva Salzman.
by Katia Tiutiunnik (2005)
To the enemy
Sit down, have a chair and relax,
you who've made the former friends bleed.
Here are all my questionable expenses
for the tax-man, the faithless to read.
Okay, so I drink, talk to strangers,
loudly befriending at parties
those lacking position, power or wealth,
who aren't distinguished or arty.
I slept with a man who was handsome
instead of the powerful editor
(not that I've ever claimed purer ethics -
it's just that I never knew better).
Please outline what's wrong with my life plan,
help map the route of my passions,
edit me into comfortable style
according to science or fashion.
It's not that I don't have ambition
or a liking for money or fame.
Is it just that i misinterpret the rules?
Don't I cheat well enough at the game?
- Eva Salzman
