O, My Wax Country
- Modern Georgian Poetry
Because "people believe only what they themselves have experienced", Nino Nadiradze’s poetry is close to them: how passionate love born in the pouring rain can be, how silence can be deafening, how some go out in search of the only one into the windy night never to come back.
Wax figures seem to be living around, while a plastic sign pinned to the sky says God has moved elsewhere and death could have been kind if not for the job it does. But still, "why are we so sure nobody watches us from the dark windows?"
