“Yes, I live inside the piano” by Katerina Rudcenkova, as translated by Alexandra Büchler
Continuing my travels to the Czech Republic, I found the young Czech poet, playwright and photographer, Katerina Rudcenkova. What I’ve read of her work so far, I really like. It is fresh, yet powerful.
“Yes, I live inside the piano” is a short—3-line poem. For a quick poetry fix, you can read it here. It is fun with a twist at the end.
If you want to know more, you can listen to this interview with Rudcenkova on Radio Czech.

I am looking forward to visiting the Czech Republic. How great that its first president Vaclav Havel was a poet!
In googling everything Czech this morning, I discovered Czech Switzerland—a National Park in northwestern Czech Republic. A fairly new National Park, it looks like a good place to visit.
