by Marcin Malek

Thou who art immeasurable
allow me measure myself —
The one who knows that he is
but does not know true cause
And when all curtain falls
please make a gesture
and give will to the flesh
so that it can absorb the world
bone by bone, sweat by sweat
teardrop by drop
and after all with no regrets

By one leg
