Poetry by Bogusia Wardein

Love of Work


At dawn or dusk

buses go from right

to left, left to right,


behind the panes

faces with a look

of being driven

to slaughter, eyes

point to the ground.


Like cattle knowing

the death by scent,

at dawn or dusk.

Bogusia Wardein’s first published piece of poetry was nominated for the Forward Prize in 2013. Since then fifty of her poems have appeared in publications internationally.
