This article examines the poetic work of one of the brightest representatives of the Bessarabian poetry – poet from Izmail, Andrei Butakov. In his poems the poet aims to convey the individual feelings against the background of postmodern reality. The motifs of loneliness and despair, moving into the world of personal feelings bring A.Butakov's creativity closer to the theme of the lyrical works of poets of the Silver Age of Russian literature. In the works of the Bessarabian poet there is a tendency to combine the spiritual heritage of this period with modernity. In the studied lyrical texts, this effect is achieved using a characteristic of the postmodern aesthetic techniques of the quoting and styling.
