The poems in this collection of Mieczyslaw Jastrun’s Memorials as translated by Dzvinia Orlowsky and Jeff Friedman radiate like milky, incandescent light bulbs. They brighten through the tensile strength of their filaments in a way we cannot see, but the heat of each filament is something we sense in each poem.
