inspired by poetry by H. Poświatowska (excerpt)

Polish text Copyright 1989 Wydawnictwo Literackie, Kraków, Poland
Halina Poświatowska, Polish, d. 11 oct 1967.
translation by Marek Lugowski

miłość jest słowem
mózg – metalową skrzynką
nakręcaną codziennie
srebrnym kluczem ułudy

ciekawości by wiedzieć
pragnienia aby znać
pożądania aby błyszczeć
uporu aby istnieć

love is a word
the brain – a metal box
wound up daily
with a silver key of delusion

a curiosity for knowing
a desire for sensing
a lust for shining
a stubbornness for being
