Awaiting by Maria Stadnicka

In the absence of a significant war,
the history takes cover in
a small, windowless house.

Despite all imperfections,
tomorrow takes its time.

Now everything happens
in the same place.
Awaiting a reality check,
I struggle to read between the lines.

The children toss the coin
by a sealed exit.
