Cardboard Bird

The Cardboard bird becomes a symbol of post-modern half-life.

Indignant

In a raspy voice

 

Doesn’t eat anything

Doesn’t drink anything

Protests

 

Doesn’t touch anyone

Рretending to be the wind

Handing out money right and left

 

Imagines himself

A picture of the postmodern half-life

 

And something else very important

I do not remember

Maybe wings

Could be a beak

Maybe a soul

 

Exactly

I do not remember

I Promise

A poem dipped in sadness

I promise that I will take away my painful darkness

But not right now

 

I will be able to understand the meaning of this darkness in the future

Well, for now

 

Give me a chance to die again

Cause freedom is loneliness

Love is a crime against loneliness
