A zapach ci poślę, zapach tych nocy, które rozcięte przemi-
jają pomiędzy nami, jak pomiędzy dwoma brzegami mija rzeka.

And I will send the scent to you, the scent of these nights,
which sliced open pass between us like a river passes between two banks.

    Grace follows a girl who

    whispers love and wears a sweat in

    gentle tufts; corn and

    syrup.

    Positively lovely, adorning

    the sky with curling lace and

    little pink matches, waiting

    to strike.

    45 rpm, soprano lilt;

    return dear scent, fond meal

    of memory and breath

    long past
