Neo-Hellene Poets, an Anthology of Modern Greek Poetry 1750-2018

My kingdom lies

beyond the terminal of the winds

visible from the other side

of the blue mountain peak.

It keeps me away from relatives

a badly shaped marble cross

with an erroneous date of death

of the one they named my father.

The path is very long

and I come from afar covered by dust

keeping the rules of my race

I killed my horse

with the sword dipped in sunlight.

They dragged me here

I’m still here

in the kingdom of the worst humiliation

in the nation of need.
