Comments: The poem plays onomatopoetically with the pseudonym Dziga Vertov - the series of sounds in the word ver is contained in the words 'ver'te' [you (pl.) believe), 'vetrov' [th wind] or even 'dver' [door], among others. The illogical, 'transrational' semantic derivation of names (Russ. zaum') is fully in line with mythopoetic avant-garde poetry.
