A weaver from Radziszów

She weaved a husband
and a son on the looms
they lived together
in her house

the husband is ordinary
he can he liked,
probably he doesn’t drink
and doesn’t say much

the son is made out of soft wool,
his sandal unsure-afraid
to come down from the wall
to touch the ground with his foot

but she waits,
circles near the looms,
already very tired from weaving
since inremembered time
a letter to her God.
