Tuesday Poem: "Finnish Girls (an Excerpt)" by Kira Wuck



Finnish girls seldom say hello
They are not shy nor arrogant

One only needs a chisel to come closer

They order their own beer

Travel all over the world

While their men are waiting at home

When angry they send you a rotten salmon.



by Kira Wuck
 (translated from the Dutch by Tilleke Schwarz)
