He Treats Them to Ice-cream

Every Sunday they went for a walk together.

He, she

and the three children.


One night

when she tried to stop him going

to this other woman,

he pulled out a flick-knife

from under the mattress.


They still go for a walk

every Sunday,

he, she and the three children.

He treats them to ice-cream and they all laugh.

She too.



Translated from the Polish by Czeslaw Milosz and Leonard Nathan.
