inspired by the poem “Yesenin’s Death” by H. Poświatowska (excerpt)

Polish text Copyright 1989 Wydawnictwo Literackie, Kraków, Poland

chustka była z jedwabiu
więc miękka
w mocnej ścianie hak
ze znaku zapytania
w wykrzyknik stężał

the kerchief was of silk
thus soft
the hook in a solid wall
out of a question mark
it froze to an exclamation point
