nostos and algos cover



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;





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.
