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.
