“This collection of poems (“Poems New and Collected”) by Polish poet Wisława Szymborska was one of the books I read in high school that I’ve come back to year after year. The poems balance the serious and emotional with the humorous and playful.
“I paired it with an Organic King Crimson from Kilogram Tea (purchased from Blueprint Coffee). A hibiscus tea, it mimics the book, balancing tart and sweet flavors. Perfect for times like these that require an exploration of both the hard truths of life and the joy of the present.”
