Ťukla ryba o kánoj
Ze smutečních vrb vystoupili
sloni Na východě se shromažďují
Své zuby dávno jsem zasela
do brázdy úrodné
Mé bílé vlasy zelenají
Mé bílé vlasy řeka polyká
Času dost. To jenom přichází noc.

Božena Správcová (b. 1969 in Prague) studied information science and has worked as an editor, publisher, and critic for the literary review Tvar (Form) for about 20 years. As a writer she has published six poetry books, two collections of interviews and three books of prose.
Her poems are complex compositions that almost reach the form of prose. She consciously combines “unpoetic” motifs, neologisms and colloquial language with literary language.
