“Doggerel!”

they exclaimed,

dismissing it,

blindly

and deliberately

missing the beauty.

… Elitist

pissing contest.

Gorky-Rasskaz

Yes, when you think of it like that: *Fuck!*

Like, Marta, who you meet on a plane,

your 10-hour neighbor,

talkative, new best friend.

Her husband likes tampons.

More precisely,

he likes watching Marta

using tampons,

a lot,

until it hurts.

He likes other things

which also hurt.

Like, my ears,

stomach and head.

I look down,

between my legs,

Gorky unread.

For all the Liberté, égalité, fraternité

Let us not forget too

is a proudly French term.

Enchanted we’re born.

Hopeful we’re children.

Disenchanted we grow.

Alas,

life cycle.

Too soon, we die.

Женя Биглова

gimmicks & perversions,

ultimately, then

the edifice crumbles,

and the wall

falls.

Hiroshima Shadow 2

He greeted them pleasantly,

rudely, they ignored.

Presently, he wished them woe betide.

Tomorrow, but a smear on pavement.

Steps,

endless.

Your neighbors

are a shit-stain on history.

“Do or die!” inner voice cries,

establishment imbued.

Soul decides, if it’s really down to two,

resignedly, alas,

let’s go with latter.

You wake up,

so as to speak,

and gradually the pain and shit of your existence

seeps back into your consciousness.

Disappointments and mistakes loom large,

yours and others.

From this life there is no escape.

Today, yet again,

more compromise and treason.
