These are four of my six lines poems which were the most popular by Facebook’s likes from Feb 24th to June 22nd (the second date is just the date of compilation of this poetry collection).


i have vodka
pickles and buckwheat
this all is not eternal
this all is forever
this all does not matter
it is neither canned meat nor dry biscuits

war, work and war again
and Friday evening and Saturday
when you reach out for a glass of wine
and there is rusty vomit in the glass
and instead of a tray there are artillery and infantry
on the waiter’s palm

the world
as I keep it silent
giving the floor
to birds and the stream
to the wind in branches
of the spring

I drink vodka
on the children
for those fallen
on the children
