We’re very excited to share with you 3 prose poems by the award-winning Bronka Nowicka translated from the Polish by Marek Kulig. They are part of Nakarmić kamień (To Feed a Stone, Biuro Literackie, 2015), a collection of prose poetry that won the Nike 2016 Literary Award, the most prestigious Polish literary prize. Full of vivid but intimate imagery with a slightly surreal twist, their length belies their depth, and they pack a punch. They question our relationships with the objects in our world and excite the reader’s imagination. We hope you’ll agree and they’ll become your new favorites
