Tasos Livaditis – Poems, Volume II

Posted: 07/12/2022 by vequinox in Literature

OR WHEN, suddenly, one turns and looks at you as if

you both came to the world for this reason; you don’t talk

to each other however his glance again wonders towards

the unanswerable from which the holy grace was painfully

given to you and other times when you mold a pitcher

in your wheel or you write a word in the sand separation  

already stands between you two and we now know where

the man who gets up to leave will finally go, only that

he started before us, like the mothers who, if darkness

comes, it’s because they were so tired and fell asleep

for a while.
