Night listening

Poetic narrations
2015

translated by Elpida Komianou

 

And so I floated

not only on water but even on land

where it was shaking the most

 

Stowaway of a deep underground tunnel

in the dim light of life

more intensely I felt the earthquakes

and the carbon monoxide in the arteries

that transfer blood down there

 

In peacetime a civil bleeding

of invisible wounds - a treaty of retreat

from the territory of happiness

 

Hollow sound of breath

in a metastasis of life

and blinking of the eyes·

a vague outline of the body

that’s only night illusion by now

 

with percussion drums and gentle piano keys

I reside in the nude and empty late-night room
