Poetry by Peycho Kanev

In the Wilderness

In the room of the sleeping man
the air gets tattooed by darkness
and becomes raw, fragile.
The clock beats in sync with his
the grass grows like a shadow
inside the dream of the horse sleeping
in the barn.
Dusty cobwebs in the corners
sway in the wind.
In the dark sky the sickle moon
burns like sin,
the next-door neighbor in his
tool shed builds a coffin out of light.
