Polish Poet

Eva Lipska has been translated into English by two women, one of whom is a teacher at U of Houston Downtown. At a poetry reading this last weekend the professor read a few poems from Lipska’s new English work The New Century.

In her poem “September 11, 2001” I especially liked the lines about talking to her dressmaker, who said,
“The world has unraveled
and the sewing machine
laughs caustically.”

I’ve only heard three of the poems from the English compilation work, but I really liked them.
