These poems talk about time, evanescence and about sense and nonsense, in the tradition of Daniil Charms and his friends.

Poetry tries to capture what goes beyond man’s language. This is especially true for Olga Martynova’s new book of poems as Tschwirik and Tschwirka are communicating in what seems a birds‘ language. Having evolved in the Novel on Parrots, they somewhat surprisingly found their way into poetry. And just as the novel does, these poems talk about time, evanescence and about sense and nonsense, in the tradition of Daniil Charms and his friends.
