Dekalog, jeden

"They have a casualty,"
no legs no papers

But that was before eleven
The Prague hospital

Shall I put the light off?
"No, thanks, I'm on duty"
It's his car
And his scarf
I'll leave it here
He might be cold when he's back

He can hardly be back
if he has no legs any more

"You'd better leave a sandwich for him, too"
He might be hungry when he's back

"Go on, it's very funny"
"Why don't we go to bed together,"
in a hotel?

And then you could call him
to tell him the number of our room

I... I didn't call him
You wanted to be through with me
and to go home

And to be left in peace
I didn't call him
He told me
