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

I wreszcie jest serce prawdziwe
jak słowo, w którym je zamknięto
– więzień dożywotni na samotność skazany
i na nieważną śmierć.

And finally the heart is true
like the word in which it was locked
– a lifetime prisoner sentenced to solitude
and an unimportant death.
