One of the most versatile and rebellious poets in Poland, Swietlicki takes us into streets, cafes, rooms, and conversations where - with his signature dark glasses - he ponders metaphysical questions in the minutiae of daily life.

These are poems about life, forgiveness, communication, love, death, and time: in the slit of a mailbox, he sees "Not the light but / the galloping Now." The poems have an urban edge and bite, and Swietlicki has recorded many of them as lyrics with his rock band.

The collection, his first to be translated into English, culls work from all twelve of his published volumes.
