WATER water water. And nothing but water.
If only an inch of land! An inch of no-matter-what land!
To set one foot on! If only!

We begged the gods for that! All of them!
Water gods, land gods, southern gods, northern gods,
For an inch, a strip, a scrap of any kind of land!
No more than just to support one claw of one foot!
And nothing. Only water. Nothing except water.
Water water water.
If only a speck of land!
There is no salvation.


by Aleksander Wat. The book is called postwar polish poetry. It's amazing. I hope you enjoyed.

Hey, sorry. I messed up the title. It's called "A Flamingo's dream". Sorry!
