Wislawa Speaks

I don’t know
could send us to the stars
could open up our hearts
I don’t know
Wislawa said

I don’t know what inspiration is
could be this instant
or a key we’ve never heard
a fortunate child would know
a fortunate child would sing

I don’t know
may drive us across the seas
change the colour of brittle leaves
I don’t know
Wislawa said
and there was a vibrant peace
