1. She Does Not Remember by Anna Swirszczynska

    She was an evil stepmother.
    In her old age she is slowly dying
    in an empty hovel.

    She shudders
    like a clutch of burnt paper.
    She does not remember that she was evil.
    But she knows
    that she feels cold.


    Translated from the Polish by Czeslaw Milosz and Leonard Nathan
