What Is Going On

What Is Going On

written by: Małgorzata Kulisiewicz

translated by: Dorota Zegarowska


Old age happened to them,


They were kids

young all the time

and now…

What is going on?


They are looking in the mirror

at faces – not theirs


Those who have been here up to now

left already

This must be a mistake.


a mistake.




Przydarzyła im się starość.


dopiero byli dziećmi,

całe życie młodzi,

a tu teraz …

Jak to tak?


Przyglądają się w lustrze

nie swoim twarzom,


że ktoś odszedł,

a przecież dopiero tu był.

To chyba jakaś pomyłka.

Na pewno
