Aleksandr Deyneka – Girl on a bike at collective farm, 1935

Invisible things, rooted in cold,
and growing toward this light
that vanishes
into each thing
it illumines. Nothing ends. The hour
returns to the beginning
of the hour in which we breathed: as if
there were nothing. As if I could see
that is not what it is.

At the limit of summer
and its warmth: blue sky, purple hill.
The distance that survives.
A house, built of air, and the flux
of the air in the air.

Like these stones
that crumble back into earth.
Like the sound of my voice
in your mouth.

Paul Auster, “Autobiography of the Eye” Disappearances: Selected Poems

His Collective Farmer on a Bicycle (1935) has been described as exemplifying the Social Realist style.
