~ Andrzej Kotański

A man should not spend his life at work
as it’s a sin
God gave us Paris, Venice,
art nouveau architecture, art deco
watches and clocks,
gave us wild strawberries
misty dawns outside of cafés’ windows,
gave us Thomas Mann and Proust,
and moors of Ireland,
created pool and teenagers,
and a thousand of other things
like waterfalls, Divine Comedy,
cigarettes and poems by Rilke,
streets lined with trees
in the South, American
cars from 1940s,
Mont Blanc pens and guidebooks
to Grenada, and
cognac, gin, whisky and Bordeaux
surely not in order for me
to sit
for eight hours daily
at work
like some wanker.
