ATHENA

Athena smiled at me when I observed

that everything suited its place
nothing jutted out of position
but the palm tree
in sandy corners of the earth
that needed direction when
early in life I discovered
my secret love: the sea
dark blue and merciless
inviting and ardent punisher
of sins told and petrified

when the goddess chose
of to make my cenotaph and
to erect my statue that
spoke of greatness
true demagogue that I was
with the vague smile
upon my face

she then placed a wilted daffodil
and a fiery red carnation
over my heart
it was a sad day when
I drank water diaphanous to be
it was a diaphanous day
when I vanished
in the azure and
with my legs I strode freely
over my statue’s joy

ΑΘΗΝΑ

Κι η Αθηνά χαμογέλασε που πρόσεξα

πως όλα ταίριαζαν στην θέση τους
τίποτα πουθενά δεν προεξείχε
