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.

Bozena Správcová (b. 1969 in Prague) is a poet and information scientist. From 1993 to 2002 Správcová worked for the literary magazine Tvar, after which she edited the web magazine Postmoderní revue, returning to Tvar in 2005 and staying there until 2012. As well as her literary and publishing work, she is a graphologist and plays the violin. She also paints and has illustrated her own books.
Her poems are complex compositions that almost reach the form of prose. She consciously combines “unpoetic” motifs, neologisms and colloquial language and is a proponent of postmodern writing in the Czech Republic. Her debut collection, published in 1993, was Guláš z modrý krávy (Goulash from the Blue Cow). More collections of poems followed, as well as two romans à clef satirising the literature industry and a few collections of interviews. She has worked for various publishers since 2013.
