3 Poems (June 2022) from Ivan Peledov

An Indefinite Wasteland

A couple of saints got stranded between
March and April. The bookstores of yesteryear 
with cautiously yawning windows
slowly get lost in the cold.
A nameless dyslexic sun
never counts her sins, never
laughs, never makes a mistake.

Above Ground

It takes an afternoon for a sunray
to embrace a garter snake. Semibirds
restlessly grow water on vacation
in the eye-resistant towers.
All the planets are curious, no doubt,
but afraid to watch.

Yeah But

It’s a pleasure to sell Lemurian tree stumps 
on the Pacific shores (free delivery in a week,
but you have to pay cash up front).
Footprints between the clouds
never reveal, never conceal.
