Farewell…for a while.

So the bad news is that yesterday was the last day of work for me, the editorial assistant for Artful Dodge. The good news though, is that this is just a temporary summer break and I’m gonna be right back, hopefully with Aaron, our other editorial assistant, around the end of August. We’ll try our best to keep our blog updated until then, but just in case we fail, we have another blog for you to follow! Here’s a fresh  new WordPress written by yours truly, on working for the Artful Dodge.

And as our parting gift until fall, find below a poetic marvel of Tomasz Jastrun’s translated from the Polish by our editor, Daniel Bourne:


After us will be neither scrap metal
Nor a laugh
From beginning to end
We have had no illusions
All our uprisings
Lie packed in the foyer
Along with a toothbrush
And towel

When someone knocks on the door
The echo
Pounds through the empty years
But there is no call to action
No convoy to Siberia
Only the upstairs neighbor whose sink
Once again has overflowed
He comes wringing his hands to warn us

Ananya Shrestha,
Asst. Editor.
