Nostos and Algos, by Manolis Aligizakis

Posted: 17/01/2022 by vequinox in Literature


Σαν πανάρχαιη ποθημένη αμαρτία

το κορμί σου

που λαχταρώ

να ξαναχαϊδέψω

λάμπει στη θύμηση μου

σαν κείνη την πρώτη φορά

κάτω απ’τον ίσκιο της ελιάς

που απαλά ψιθίριζε

ναι, ναι


Like an ancient

repeatedly hymned sin

your body that I crave

to re-explore

gleams in my mind

like that first time

under the shade of the olive tree

whispering softly

yes, yes
