Flesh

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

From: 
By one leg
