My debut at poetry with the volume “The Epitaph for the Tuberosa” under my maiden name Lubińska, “Arkona” Bydgoszcz, 1994, and the distinguished erotic “The Two-headed Dragon” in the 23rd M. Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska Contest of Poetry in 2016 gave me a free way to write love poems like these including erotics.

This is Olga’s first appearance at Pure Haiku.

becoming themselves

polliwogs don’t miss their tails
