Daniil Kharms was an early Soviet-era avant-gardist and absurdist poet, writer and dramatist. His play "The plummeting old women" is an absurd story. Excessive curiosity made one old woman fall out of a window, plummet to the ground and break into pieces. Another old woman poked her head out of a window to look at the one who had broken into pieces, but excessive curiosity made her too fall out of the window, plummet to the ground and break into pieces. Then a third old woman fell out of a window, then a fourth, then a fifth. When a sixth old woman fell out, I felt I’d had enough of watching them and went off to the Maltsev Market where I heard that a blind man had been given a knitted shawl.
