translated by Yannis Goumas

What a mad greedy
Dog is time licking
Our bones.

     ₪

In this Hades
Of the upper world.

     ₪

Behind the face, the mask.

     ₪

So many books, yet incapable
Of teaching
Ignorance.

     ₪

And the tongue
A scared little fish
Caught in the net
Of teeth.

     ₪

From a young age
With an illness we visited
Old age.

     ₪

Bronchitis’ cat.

     ₪

Millions of breasts
Dripping ―
For milk to shine
In the firmament.

     ₪

The moon’s bodiless head.

     ₪

Hypocrisy: the grandma of virtue.
