Paradise Apples

written by: Irena Ewa Idzikowska

translated by: Artur Komoter


reduced tension
somewhere in the distance
a watchmaker
repairs a clock
from before a hundred hundy hunnit
plunge in by light
like paradise apples
in the basket
silk of feelings
from the shoulders
slipped off like a shawl
a wounded tree
with an echo cried
look a cuckoo
no one dared
losses gains
white veil
burned with snow
in frozen atria
a smile
li li lightly
with a human heart

Rajskie Jabłuszka

written by: Irena Ewa Idzikowska


zmniejszone napięcie
gdzieś w dali
naprawia zegar
sprzed stu stu stu
światłem wpadają
jak rajskie jabłuszka
do koszyka
uczuć jedwab
z ramion
osunął się szalem
poranione drzewo
echem zapłakało
patrz kukułka
nikt nie śmiał
straty zyski
biały welon
śniegiem zapłonął
w zziębniętych przedsionkach
le le leciutko
ludzkim sercem
