O czym myśli dziewczyna na lekcji gramatyki języka polskiego

What does a girl think about during her Polish grammar lessons

He will appear on the thirteenth of November. Or
whenever.
He will come off a photograph of an illustrated magazine
in tight shorts that he recommends for the summer.
Or off a screen. With the dusk of Godard
and with a wild rose that will substitute the dubbing for us.

We will drive to an island
whose sketch we will have added onto a map.
A shared room in a hotel will sway
like a ship in the clouds.
Which one of us will save oneself?
(The girl accedes to that thought
with a life- buoy
at her heart)

The teacher wears red socks
on her legs demonstratively drawn forward.
As though she had understood the advantage of time
and the gravity of thought.
Imagination on alert. Percussion of the heart.
Feverish state of night. Night: a form of time.
A form of future tense
Constructed from a finite form: I will be, you will be,
we will be, you will be (plural), they will be
Also, from the infinitive form: To love.
I will love.

What does a girl think about in a polish grammar language class

He will appear on the thirteenth of November. Or
whenever.

He will step out of a photograph of an illustrated magazine
in tight shorts which he recommends for the summer.
Or from a screen. With Godard’s sunset
and with a wild rose which will substitute for the dubbing.

We’ll go to an island
Which we’ll draw on a map.
The hotel room we’ll share will sway
like a ship in the clouds.
Which one of us will
survive?
(The girl is trying to approach this thought with a life buoy
on her heart)

The teacher is wearing red socks
on her legs manifestively moved forward.

As if she understood the advantage of time
and serious thought.

Imagination is alarmed. The heart throbs.
The feverish state of night. Night: form of time.

It is a form of future tensevPut together from the finite form: I will, you will,
we will, you will (plural), they will.

As well as with the infinitive form: love.
I will love.

What does the girl think about, in her Polish Grammar class

He appeared on the 13th of November.
Or another time.
He came out of a photograph from the illustrated page
adorned in tight shorts that she prefers in summer.
or from the screen. The wild rose of twilight
of Godard is lost in translation.

We wander about an islandvthat has not yet been charted.
Our shared hotel room will rock
like a ship on the clouds.
Which one of us will be saved?
(When the girl’s thoughts wander
She pulls her heart back with the
Life preserver that envelopes her heart)

The teacher wears red socks
on her provocatively outstretched legs.
If she could understand the wisdom that time brings
and the intention behind it.
The imaginary alarm. The percussion of her heart.
The night is full of passion. Night: a form of time.
A form of future time.
Composed of human form: I will, you will
we will, you all will, they will
as a form of infinity: love.
I will love.

He will appear at thirteenth of November. Or

He will come off a photo of an illustrated magazine
in tight shorts which he recommends for the summer.
Or off the screen. With the dusk of Godard
with a wild rose which will substitute the dubbig for us.

We will go to an island
which we will add on the map.
Our hotel room will sway
like a ship in the clouds.
Who will survive?
(The girl come up to that thought
with the life-belt
at her heart)

Her teacher wears red socks
at her legs ostentatiously standing out forward.
Just like she understood the superiority of time
and the gravity of thoughts.
The alert of imagination. The percussion of heart.
The subferible state of night. Night: the form of time.
The form of future tense
composed of the personal form: I will be you will be
we will be you will be they will be
and of the form of infinitive: to love.
I will love.
