Mid-Winter In Gdańsk


Europe, a room
in which a cigarette

is the only source of heat. Pigeons
purr in their meekness.

I should be happy
they will inherit the earth.

The damp nets hanging to dry
in Jelitkowo. So why do I think

of my village in Illinois
tiny o of the map

a carp feeding in a pond
the spreading ripple from its lips?
