We feast at night on warm potatoes 

          and salo browned to a crust

Cold herring   fresh garlic dipped in salt

 

Winter covers the fields

 

Imports from Turkey and Poland

Plastic bags filled with buckwheat and cabbage

Chocolate eggs with collectible toys

Gum wrappers           pornographic playing cards

 

When spring arrives 

           we are surprised to find coins along the roadside
