ΥΠΟΘΕΣΗ

 

Άν δεν γινόσουνα δεκτός

σ’ αυτή τη μήτρα

 

άν δεν γεννιόσουν

σ’ αυτούς τους γονείς

 

άν δεν έπαιρνες τη σάρκα

και το αίμα τους

 

λές να έμενες μετέωρος

στο κενό για πάντα;

 

 

HYPOTHESIS

 

If you weren’t accepted

in that womb

 

if you weren’t born

to your parents

 

if you didn’t receive

their flesh and blood

 

would you have hovered

in the void for ever?

 

NOSTOS and ALGOS, Ekstasis Editions, Victoria, BC, 2012

Cover painting: Syllogism by Giannis Stratis, internationally known Greek artist.
