Translated from Polish by Magda Woźniak
Both in green overalls, scalpels in their hands. They started
cutting. Ghastly pain, preternatural joy in their eyes… Known from
somewhere, but… I did not even know who I am. They took a great, brown
organ out of me. The agony was so monstrous that I went away to
nothingness. I awoke. I smelt the pleasant smell of frying meat. I
heard the tinkle of the cutlery. They were sitting at the table eating…
what they excised from my body!
”Tasty liver” the man praised me with his mouth filled.
fuck are you?”
The woman came and affectionately stroking my forehead, said:
“This is my husband, Peter Vulture. I am Halina Vulture.”
She bowed and kissed my forehead.
“Sleep, Prometheus; tomorrow we eat
your liver again.”
