A Simple Space

[Here the heavy heart, there non omnis moriar
just three little words, like a flight’s three feathers.

The abyss doesn’t divide us.]
The abyss surrounds us.

Wisława Szymborska, from “Autotomy”, translated by S. Barańczak and C. Cavanagh, in Poems New and Collected

The poet Wisława Szymborska died on the 1st February 2012 at the age of 88.
