Poetry in English by a Russian-American poet. "Dayen is a sharp observer of the every day experiences in life. He doesn't mince with words or clothe them in similes and metaphors, preferring to speak in the language of the common man and woman, and in doing so, he steers clear of the vain and maudlin tone too evident in many of today's poets. Read him at a bar with a shot of whiskey, or in a cafe with a double shot of Espresso; if one of the two doesn't get you 'wired," the poetry will." —A. D. Winans "Aleksey—your work is like Bukowski—except you go a step further and make us care about your lit of cigarettes, letting them go back into the silence from where they came, saying goodbye to them with an image." —Hal Sirowitz
