What the Orphan Knows About Light


.
for Anna Kamienska**

'I don't believe in the other world
...But I don't believe in this one either
unless it's pierced by light.' - A. Kamienska


Hidden behind a star
the ash sings without self-pity -

stake your claim in Beauty.

Jab the mausoleum
majesty of State
in the eye.

Here is your key, little one.
Now run quickly home.

O Love! thou makest all things even
In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
