Five Poems by Mykyta Ryzhykh

 




my dad loves all aspects of life

especially death

 

***


dinosaurs chirping outside the window as if they are 

extinct

 

***


Having something in common with people

More and more of my own free will

becoming a dog

 

***


artillery sadness instead of ribs

 

***


                                          amputation

the leg is thrown on the second leg

in the form of a house

life is an eternal escape from the

lobby of the hotel of loneliness
