New Year’s Day 2015

New Year’s Day 2015

 

Here are some lines for this New Year’s Day which every author will wish he’d written himself:

 

Overheard written down

Reaper

The door shuddered – who is it?
death
entered slight teeny-weeny with a scythe like a matchstick
Surprise. Eyes agog
and it
I came for the canary

— Jan Twardowski
Transl. Ryszard Reisner

 

Has it ever struck you that the New Year is like a closed book
and you can’t even look at the last page??

Baby

May 2015 embrace you in robust health,
with adequate prosperity, and all the luck of the draw!
