Eagle

After the all-night feast wound down

and all stomachs were satisfied

sparrows woke up to claim their share

when the sun rose to caress its horizon

as he sat amid drunkenness with the

gouge of a deep wound

in his chest calling for attention

με μια βαθεια πληγη στο στέρνο

που απαιτούσε προσοχη

είπε

ξαπλώστε με εδω, σιμά στη φωτιά

τα αιχμηρά του νύχια να νιώσω θέλω
