Harbingers of the Deaths of Parrots

Poetry Krzysztof Jaworski
Translated from the Polish by Benjamin Paloff

Perhaps the songs they sang for us / were not those we’d have wanted to hear, / but who among us can, with a clean conscience, / say of himself that what matters to him / is what others listen to.
