Christmas Time
by Ewa Lipska

During Christmas I can finally
turn off the phone.
If the Savior is born,
the neighbor will pop in.

I watch Casablanca 
with the usual
appetite for digression.

I party with solitude,
and drink hot milk with honey.
My sixth finger
types out letters.

I will not write anything anymore.
The rest of the evening
is untouchable.

Translated, from the Polish, by Doru Radu.
