More information about Vladimir Mayakovsky can be found at these links from Wikipedia and this Russian Poetry website. Here is a rare audio recording of his lover, Lila Blik, reading Mayakovsky's poem "The Fop's Blouse" in Russian.

 

 

“There’s no grandfatherly fondness in me,

There are no gray hairs in my soul!

Shaking the world with my voice and grinning,

I pass you by, - handsome,

Twentytwoyearold.”
