Where is life?
Where the love is?
Or maybe
the hate is?
I know –
breath is the life.
Trees also breathe,
though they cannot love.
And people…?


Gdzie jest życie?
Tu gdzie miłość?
A może
gdzie nienawiść?
Już wiem –
oddech to życie.
Drzewa też oddychają,
choć nie potrafią kochać.
A ludzie…?


Shrouded in the scent of a man,
under the chador of indifference
she hid the desires.
She thought
that he smelled of oblivion already
but in her there is still
the past of narrow corridors
with a fleeting haze
lashing the senses.

Ulotna mgła

Owiana zapachem mężczyzny,
pod czadorem obojętności
ukryła pragnienia.
że pachniał już niepamięcią,
ale w niej wciąż jest
przeszłość wąskich korytarzy
z ulotną mgiełką
smagającą zmysły.


Smitten by the ether of love
she lies in the wilderness.

Her desolation
blinds even with darkness.
Awakened from the ether –
she still dreams.


Porażona eterem miłości
leży na pustkowiu.

Jej bezludzie
oślepia nawet ciemnością.
Budzona z eteru –
wciąż śni.
