Penguins by Volodymyr Bilyk

detached cry at the tin bowl:
echo - quells,
inane meek flush appears
: gray glow...
wave hand kindly ,

Maybe
hear some things...

...
be curious enough to ask
if there is a formula.

shed tears
inside out.

"blank stare, wink-wink"

ABBBBAABAAABBABAABBABABAAABAAAABBABBAABA
AABBBABAAABAABABAABA

"off"
(is a line).
in the haze,
tongue claps - offensive.
(Smoke
shimmers.)
sad.

mountains laughing
, sobbing.
listening to
hair rash...

nothing-nothing...
quietly
rains

("squirm, wince, flinch, shudder")

tremendous
shadow falls.
a few touches
here and there...
the roar...:

“What?
“Nothing.”
“Oh, yes. Right.”

ABBBBAABAAABBABAABBABABAAABAAAABBABBAABA
AABBBABAAABAABABAABA

craggy fog
wracks
improbable
squawk wobble.

whatever smells that way...
throes additional sizzle...sigh,

so boring...

ABBBBAABAAABBABAABBABABAAABAAAABBABBAABA
AABBBABAAABAABABAABA

boxing flip-flap
fuzzy cough -
clanging
hops of wight lame
- knee jerks,
m ore like bobs...

Listen to these lost and
useless notions...

ABBBBAABAAABBABAABBABABAAABAAAABBABBAABA
AABBBABAAABAABABAABA

blight,  tight fist,

elbow
groan
(great!)

terrible
wisps and skimps
- puff,

tainted
lips
cheer...

curdle curves cuddle.
sour clatter:
neat vexation.

ABBBBAABAAABBABAABBABABAAABAAAABBABBAABA
AABBBABAAABAABABAABA

table
slowly
tossed
- indecent flight ends with an impact
- broken pieces look like abstract action figures...

what a marvel!

(wind and  breath
get into a fight)

hideous
quake,
eyes toot.

gasp.
back matters.
skews a bit
definite  gust
kicks the cheeks
chin  jigs
with a sound of a hiss.

dung aside
booms.
