Dream: Milosz - Poem by Leo Yankevich

Milosz lies on his death bed,
but, on the other side,
awake in a grey room

where there’s no night or day—
a Swedenborgian
self-sentenced heaven-hell.

I stand nearby the window.
He says: “I’ve always known
I am the greatest poet.”

I answer: “I feel the same
about my humble self.
And what about God? ”

With stern hawkish eyes,
he looks at me and says:
“Electricity! ”
