leonide

I dream you, and you come to me
intact, in focus, indiscreet, mouthing
the sweetest lies as if we cared.

As if, in fact, we might begin again
with needle-tracks and scratches down your arms
that might have told in drunken hieroglyphs

how heavy-shouldered I pick my way
through a night of empty forecourts,
back to the etceteras of passion:

the obligatory pathos of discarded shoes,
the glass of water juddering by the bed,
the face my heavenly eyes avoid.

Private Moon

Traveling the world under the dark sky, Moscow-born physician turned artist Leonid Tishkov has been sharing his idea of unity, privacy and loneliness with the rest of the world. This artificially illuminated crescent moon art installation is a metaphor for the power of a single thing to unite people all over the world. Nations and cultures share the same inspiration that brings poetic moments in everyone’s life.
