Rome, Italy.: PSIK.. Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. 1987. Softcover. 8vo - 21 x 15.5 cm.; Unpaginated with 36 pages. The text is in Polish.

Besides the publisher being identified as PSIK, they are also listed as "Edizioni d'arte e pubblicita". With the title being what it is and the publisher being an art publisher in Rome, I feel there must be a story behind this collection of poems. Perhaps another one of life's tender mercies? Hmm . . questions about one's homeland? .
