the Vistula Spit
Time of passage. I know I should be doing now all the things that should’ve been done for yesterday, but instead of being up to my eyes in work I choose to go out to the Vistula river with my husband. He goes fishing, me – just hanging around.
Wisława Szymborska wrote once :
I prefer the time of insects to the time of stars.*
For now, so do I.
