How to make poetry out of the nightmare of recent Albanian history?

These poems, these dark essays in ecstasy, see much farther than we can imagine.

And the dry rhythmic knocking/until his silhouette disappears/amidst the shadows cast down by rooftops/their melting snow dripping/in terrible slowness...
