I feel as though a new project was born with this piece,
but I am unable to name it yet.

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.

And I will send the scent to you, the scent of these nights

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.

I will be this perfect empty body-a woman

zarżnięta
zastygnę w kształt niepowtarzalny
tym kształtem będę wabić
bezwładnymi ramionami
obiecywać rozkosz aż do dna niczego
dawać — oddawać
i będę tym doskonałym pustym ciałem
kobietą

—-

slaughtered
I will congeal into a unique shape
in this shape I will entice
with disabled arms
promising pleasure until nothingness dawns
giving — giving away
I will be this perfect empty body
a woman

odkąd ptaki odfrunęły z moich słów
i gwiazdy zgasły
nie wiem jak nazwać
strach i śmierć i miłość

ever since the birds flew away from my words
and the stars went out
I don’t know what to call
fear and death and love
