		The Beginning
		-------------------------------------------------------

		In the sweet sickening odor
		we found lips again
		very small-fry lost
		in the monstrous setting sun

		the rains
		washed our godly bare feet
		and so not staining heaven
		we entered
		heaven
		

		        Halina Poswiatowska d. 11 October 1967

		Pocza/tek
		-------------------------------------------------------

		W mdla/cosl/odkim zapachu
		odnalez/lis/my usta
		bardzo niewielkie zgubione
		pod upiornym zachodnim sl/on/cem

		deszcze
		umyl/y nasze bose nogi
		wie/c wsta/pilis/my
		nie plamia/c nieba
		w niebo
