Kacper Bartczak (b.1972)

Beyond the Helplessness Principle
Something will occur and at once it will be found
among other occurrences I know
that the heaviest dreams are only an illusion
I know it from experience I see my own
experience now that it is over
Of course it is still alive statistical
and divine
Later on the poem
does not ask me any questions
about my wife kids work and photography
I just let it drink
from the well Your water
is hard clear with a note of iron
it says and it drinks greedily
like some kind of refugee
Translated by the author and Marit MacArthur
