— a poem by Nikita Parik

Untidy scribbles on colorful pages

Evoking the familiar enraptured anguish,

Such as a peacock’s emotion when a drizzle ends,
Or a lover’s at the denouement of a kiss.
Spake the fey heart thus then, "that passed away, and so may this"…
"That passed away, and so may this"...
