translated by Yannis Goumas

 

My angel is one of darkness
a faithful dog leaning on me wrapped in silence
--when the wheel of tenderness slides downhill—
he sinks in the town’s ashes
and at night he dreams of explosions.
Then we both sink into a pillow of words.

Mother dressed in snow
enters through the window.
