"

We fall asleep on words
we wake in words

sometimes they are gentle
simple nouns
a forest a ship

they tear themselves from us
the forest goes quickly
behind the line of the horizon

the ship sails away
without a trace or a reason

dangerous are the words
which have fallen from a whole
fragments of sentences maxims
the beginning of a refrain
of a forgotten hymn

"saved will be those who…"
“remember to…”
or “like”
a small prickly pin
that connected
the most beautiful
lost metaphor of the world

one must dream patiently
hoping the content will become complete
that the missing words
will enter their crippled sentences
and the certainty we wait for
will cast anchor

"

Zbigniew Herbert, A Box Called the Imagination (trans. John & Bogdana Carpenter)

"I don’t write poetry when I wish, I write when I can’t, when my larynx is flooded and my throat is shut."

"The poet is a great mute. He wheezes his infirmity, mumbles, stutters, fumbles; his great error is human."
