translated by Dimitris Troaditis

Tell me,
why you write poems
when there are no readers?
People are despaired
and took to the streets.
And poetry now seems a distant memory,
a picturesque art...
There is life here that must be rescued.
There are children
and children are not growing up with words
Here hands and bodies needed
and revolvers
killing hesitations and postponements.
