Poetry: Mykyta Ryzhykh

Mykyta Ryzhykh
the poet is a lamb drinking water
the wolf is a poem that eats us

poems drown with us in sugar water
the river of time moves towards uncertainty

the dead hare is forever 
related to the grass

snow covers everything 
with a blanket

for the first and last time 
I’m dying and you still don’t love me

the city is divided into two parts:

in the first part you kiss lovers and hang out with friends
in the second part there is a cemetery
