Nezval in B O D Y

I greet your gliding flight O wings of death
Those who resisted it
Have purple faces
Have bloodshot eyes like a withering grape leaf

– from the latest offering in the Winter 2021 Issue of B O D Y is a poem titled “The Trapdoor”, excerpted from the 1936 work of poet Vítězslav Nezval, Woman in the Plural, translated from the Czech by Stephan Delbos and Tereza Veverka Novická.
