Intricacies : Poems of the Heart





There is a house, old and decrepit
I can take care of only in my sleep

Here is the living room—or a bathroom—
The water on the floor must be mopped

Here is the kitchen with a tree in its midst
Oh, so many spiders running up and down!

Here is a drawer full of yellowed letters
In a desk, near the wall soft with mold

Each time I venture to walk upstairs,
My feet plunge through the cracks

Whoever distributes sleep, please
make mine last longer

So that I get smart with this house
before I wake up




Finishing Line Press 2016




….you open first, last or any page and the book starts whispering in the language of a great poetry.
Yes, it is the book that starts talking to you at the moment you touch it.

…like the speaker in Intricacies, I hoped “to get smart with this house” before the awakening of the last page, but it came too soon.

back cover blurb


Kurowska’s style seems sparse at times, but is laden with meaning and depth.
