Topiel is an old Polish word whose exact translation doesn’t exist in any other language.

In order to understand it and use it, We will have to first find the places that contain its essence. Then extract it and isolate it through the method of synonymity. Once extracted in its purest form, you are now ready to use it, but not before you smell its stifling aroma and taste its repugnant flavours.

text Rohan Fernandes

An illusion often calls
from the swamps.

Everything dissolves beyond the dead end.

A feast takes place on motionless skin.

A stare finds its way through the thick undergrowth.

Can’t look back while running.

In the morning it will just be another bone.

It happens here every night.
