Zygmunt Malanovicz

sitting, writing, yesterday
in a warm conservatory
sunshine cutting paper
drying ink
vibrating in a pocket
a message from Warszawa
from his beloved Dorota
a knife stabs the ocean
that lies between us
Zygmunt Malanowicz
artist, film director, actor
the man with the knife
‘Nóż W Wodzie’ – ‘Knife in the Water’
Dorota messaged me
“Zygmunt is dead”
“Covid” she said
today the April shower
is a cold cold snow

Al Barz

I was proud to have my cousin Zygmunt, to know him for a moment.
