Correspondence

“They are both convinced
That a sudden feeling united them.
Such certainty is beautiful,
But uncertainty is more beautiful.
Not knowing each other, they believe
That nothing ever happened between them.
But what about the streets, the stairs, the corridors
Where could they have long crossed paths?
I would like to ask them
if they don’t remember –
once a face-to-face
In some revolving door?
an “excuse me” in the crush?
a “wrong number” in the handset?
– But I know the answer.
No, they do not remember.
They would be very surprised to know.
che già da parecchio tempo
chance played with them. […]”

(Wislawa Szymborska, Love at First Sight)
