Yevgeniy Levitskiy

The Pinnacle

The pinnacle
of abstract leaders
tilt the progression
board of institutions,
the intuition of
mother’s scapegoat milk,
climaxes the elderly
children of ancient times,
light shining on
exposed bosoms and
blossoming flowers.

Tired eyelids speak
and tight lips hear
as the tire marks
eliminate contestants
on game shows.
