Staircase Poetry Project

Poem Four

No Bestseller/Zaden Bestseller

Poem Four (November 25 to December 8) is bilingual--it's presented in English and another language heard more and more in Ireland today: Polish. To do this, I collaborated with Justyn Hunia who is a poet, translator and musician living in Krakow. Justyn translated my poem and also had the vinyl lettering for the staircase signs printed in Krakow. Why? To get the diacritical marks in Polish right. Justyn and I have worked together before translating a poem by Wislawa Szymborska.
In the very near future, I'll post some information on Poems One, Two and Three. Just getting this site up and running now!
