|THE AGES OF MAN|
Direction: Zofia Pregowska
Final age. 90: a landmark age, especially if you reach it like Krystyna, with your faith in poetry untouched. Krystyna is a very old woman from Poland who writes poems in the dark. Sometimes she is the only one who can read them with her faltering sight, for they have been written with a defective pen. Lines about a dog made of chalk that stands for eternity.
