Match Girl

Match Girl by Kasia Polkowska

In the upper left hand corner (inside a room, among the apartment buildings) my mother is reading the story to me and my two sisters.  As she approaches the sad ending – an ending I’ve heard before – I leap out of the room, landing in the story.  Though I am too late; all that is left of the little girl is a shadow surrounded by light, as her soul ascends to heaven. –Kasia Polkowska
