Flying lesson

Wings

We have
a map of the universe
for microbes,
we have
a map of a microbe
for the universe

We have
a Grand Master of chess
made of electronic circuits.

But above all
we have
the ability
to sort peas,
to cup water in our hands,
to seek
the right screw
under the sofa
for hours

This
gives us
wings.

- Miroslav Holub


One of the first things I did after arriving here was finding out where they sell English books. Today I went to the Hibernian. I fell in love with the poems of an internationally distinguished scientist (imunologist) who was also Czechoslovakia’s most lively and experimental poet. On my way home, reading, I bumped into this lady.
