[english] A Visit

Autorem wiersza jest Tadeusz Różewicz

I couldn`t recognize her
when I came in here
just as well it`s possible
to take so long arranging these flowers
in this clumsy vase

`Don`t look at me like that`
she said
I stroke the cropped hair
with my rough hand
`they cut my hair` she says
`look what they`ve done to me`
now again that sky-blue spring
begins to pulsate beneath the transparent
skin of her neck as always
when she swallows tears

why does she stare like that
I think I must go
I say a little too loudly

and I leave her,
a lump in my throat

trans. Adam Czerniawski
