Written by Leokadia Komaisko

Translated from the Polish by the Poet

Narrated by Bill Wolak


On my planet orange

I stood on the balcony. I went out at night for a gulp

of air. For the scent of the roses hugging each other

bouquets for sleeping. After the meow

my wild cats for bedtime. AND

I saw how in the light of the lanterns,

the bush breathed thirsty with its green lungs.
