A Thousand Evil Deeds

This is a story about the kids from Biskupice — a rusty-with-ill-reputation industrial district of Zabrze in the Silesian Highlands of Southern Poland.

Children from Biskupice have the luxury of freedom which their peers from big metropolities can not feel. Children from Biskupice do not have fenced play areas, and they are allowed to trample lawns. They can play football everywhere they want, enjoy adventures and secret places, and not always behave well.

Their world seem to be infinite.

This is a story about five friends who democratically share fags, chocolate, crisps and fizzy drinks. They steer clear of a bully, “Big Aneta”. These boys hate school and already two of them left it for good.

They can not start with a clean slate though. Szychta with Kalus dumped a cat off the bridge. Kalus with Bajlas devastated the local cemetery. Bajlas with Szychta set fire to an old shed. And Bajlas smashed a dinner plate on his school friend’s head.

Their world can appear fascinating with its limitless living space and imagination, but then it makes you puzzled with the moral code. This poses the question of how many evil deeds are yet to be committed to reach anticipated adulthood…

to shove my clothes
to one side of the closet,
give you the bigger half.
Quietly I’ll hide most of my shoes,
so you won’t know I have this many.

I will
rearrange furniture to add more,
find space on my shelves
for your many books,
nail up the placard that says
‘poets do it, and redo it, and do it again.’

I want
to share a laundry basket,
get our clothes mixed up,
wait for the yelling
when my reds run wild
into your whites
turning them a luscious pink,
your favorite color of me.

I will
move my pillow
to the other side of the bed,
lay yours next to mine,
your scent on hte fabric
always near me,
even on nights you’re away.

I will
buy a new bureau to hold your
thousand and one black socks,
find a place for all those work boots,
the ones I refer to as big and ugly.

I want
more pots and pans to wash,
piles of them leaning high
from late night meals
cooked naked and drunk,
red wine pouring into
a sauce of simmering tomatoes,
garlic, and olive oil,
kisses bitten between bites,
and platefuls of our late hours,
stacking up into dawn.

I want
to stock cupboards, closets, and
pantry.
fill the house with us.
I want to gain weight with you
because our love,
our love makes me fat.

I deeply regret that I have tested positive for a prohibited substance in violation of the NHL/NHLPA Performance Enhancing Substances Program. I accept full responsibility for this error. As a professional athlete I am responsible for what I put in my body, and I am to blame for this mistake.
I want to make it clear that this violation occurred because I ingested a product that can be purchased over-the-counter and which, unknown to me, contained a substance that violated the program. Unfortunately, I did not take the necessary care to ensure that the product did not contain a prohibited substance. I want to stress, however, that I did not take this substance for the purpose of enhancing my athletic performance.
I apologize to my teammates and to the Buffalo Sabres organization, as well as to my friends and family. I have learned a great deal from this experience, something I hope to be able to share with younger players. I will accept this suspension and continue to work hard to prepare for the 2014-15 season.
