The World Shared free pdf Dariusz Sosnicki's poems open our eyes to the sublime just beneath the surface of the mundane: a train carrying children away from their parents for summer vacation turns into a ravenous monster- a meal at a Chinese restaurant inspires a surreal journey through the zodiac- a malfunctioning printer is a reminder of the ghosts that haunt us no matter where we find ourselves."Among the perpetrators and victims, buzzed or wasted to the bone, gliding without their blinkers onin the ruts of the national fate--they're not at home."Dariusz Sosnicki is an award-winning poet, essayist, and editor in Poland.
