images of absence cover

CAREFREE

In the breeze of twilight
your arm moves
outside the window
of the car and
suddenly you grab
your hat and with ease
you let it fly away

free like I am
—you say, a bird
in the wind’s embrace

and I smile
and touch your hair

ΞΕΓΝΟΙΑΣΙΑ

Στης εσπέρας τη δροσιά
το χέρι σου κινείται
έξω απ’ το παράθυρο
του αυτοκινήτου
και ξάφνου πιάνεις
το καπέλλο
κι ανέμελα τ’ αφήνεις
στου ανέμου το μεθύσι

λεύτερο σαν και μένα
—λες, πουλί
στου κόσμου την αγκάλη

καθώς χαμογελώ
κι αγγίζω τα μαλλιά σου
