Throughout the poem Skrzynecki refers to the town directly as 'you' which personifies the town. In the second stanza Skrzynecki speaks to the personified town about certain characteristics which gives us a sense that Skryznecki is somewhat connected to the town, which is ironic considering he has never visited. Even though in the first paragraph of stanza two the reader begins to feel a sort of connection between Skrzynecki and Warsaw, it is quickly juxtaposed by the following paragraph which depicts Skrzynecki rejecting the town. The phrase 'I've seen red buses elsewhere and all the rivers have an obstinate glare' suggests that Skrzynecki feels as though Warsaw has nothing special to offer him. Furthermore the word obstinate has negative connotations which represent his feelings towards the town. Skrzynecki rhetorically asks about his choice of home and where he belongs 'what's my choice to be?', reinforcing his changeable inner conflict regarding where he feels he belongs. At the end of the poem Skrzynecki's inevitable connection with the town emerges further. The final image of the tree whispering 'we will meet before you die' gives the reader a sense of hope for Skrzynecki's future in that he will hopefully have the opportunity to develop a connection with his heritage and the town of Warsaw.
