Maskarada (Polish)

Edwardowi Hirschowi


z przebieralni ciał

kostiumy są pożyczone

włożone na próbę




należą do obcej osoby

za chwilę

ktoś niewidzialną ręką

zdejmie ze mnie życie

jak zużyty rekwizyt

a ja będę grać

w nowej masce

Masquearade (English)

To the Poet Edward Hirsch

I'm leaving my body

The costumes are borrowed

From the changing room of life

My face belongs to a foreign person

For the moment

Someone's invisible hands

Removes my life

As a used prop

I'm leaving

To start playing

In the new mask
