  • English translation of first line: On the sea shore
  • Epigraph: Z [From] René Magritte
  • The poem responds to René Magritte's painting 'Collective Invention', depicting a beached mermaid in reverse, a fish with a woman's legs. The final two lines are:
    W oku kobiety-ryby
    Jarzy się ziarno galaktyki
    [In the eye of the woman-fish
    Glows a galactic grain]
