Zbigniew Herbert’s “Study of the Object” puts me in a state of parallel reality that is more profound than my own, and that truly lifts my spirits: “now you have / empty space / more beautiful than the object / more beautiful than the place it leaves / it is the pre-world / a white paradise / of all possibilities….”
