The article examines the verse and stylistic features of the “Moscow Time” poetry on the materials of its representatives as S. Gandlevsky, A. Soprovsky, A. Tsvetkov and B. Kenjeev. The article also proposes a classification of the versification system of poems according to the principle of banality and originality. The poetry of “Moscow time” is called a “modern classic”. The main focus of the poets` poetic culture defined as socially shocking, manifested both at the level of content and form. Non-standard range, some obviously conspicuous verse factors such as graphics, destruction of the capital letter rule at the beginning of a line, syntax, stanza, hyphenation system, and much more, are balanced through the usage of traditional metrics in most cases that determines the intonation pattern.

“Moscow Time” authors` poetry becomes an example of productive handling of the poetic tradition because they bend the classics for themselves; making original, unrecognizable graphics, stanzas, syntax, expanding the themes assigned to the size, non-standard rhymes and much more. And these paradoxes of the classics among the poets of “Moscow time” can be explained by the fact that a stable (constant, invariant) complex of elements of the classical system of verse in the context of their poetry is a redistribution of known elements within the system itself.
