Do Not Complain to Distant Friends by Adam Szyper


fuckyeahpolishpoets:

Once I wrote to a distant friend
About my suffering HERE and he replied:
“You have no idea how I suffer HERE.”

Thus I told him about spots on the moon
And canals on the planet Mars and he told me about
Black holes in space and the disappearance of dinosaurs.

Our eyes are immersed in slushy puddles
And everyone in his own puddle
Sees only his own monster.
