Haikus, tear away bits of joy – Haikus, arracher de la joie

I fell in love with a verse of Maiakovsky Tear away bits of joy from the fleeing days and wanted to do something inspired by it. I was in a sad mood after the Nice events and did it.
To know, to suffer
But tear away bits of Joy
From the fleeing days

But while searching more info about it,  I discovered it was  an erroneous translation. Written after the suicide of a friend,  Yvan Mignot says that it says Tear away bits of joy from the days to come. And this matched still more with my mood. Plus a haunting image of the teddy bear of a magnificent little by dead in the Nice tragedy. I did another version.
To know, to suffer
But tear away bits of Joy
From the days to come
