Coffee Bar

Sheets of sleeplessness
2006

translated by Yannis Goumas

For me is music playing so marvellously
For me the minors glitter with tarantellas
The lace curtains facing the snow
Tremble at your frigid touch
On the trees a green promise – out of sight

For me is the coffee hot – a deep well

For me the handsome waiter comes and goes
Turns abstracted to the window – grows old in a flash
What is the young man looking at that I can't see?
The hellish snow or a swallow?
For me another white day
Comes in and sits next to me ashen-faced

  Sheets of sleeplessness, Metaixmio editions, Athens, 2006
