Not a Question

She shows her self                                    To those who will listen

She talks                                                       To those who will see

The boulevards that are life

 

Without gazing further

than the next shop-window

walking down the street

along the boulevard that is life

 

Sobbing in restrooms

of cities without names

picking garments on sale

along the boulevards that are life

 

Hanging paper over holes

in the walls and

pounding on a nail for the hostage

driver of a hijacked bus

and the zebra crossings

are black and black only

and deep

between the boulevards that are life

Vassilis Economidis

Artist says: “Although she suffers from brain cancer and has

little time left, she still has that sparkle in her eyes and that

gaze full of hope that goes beyond the boundaries of death.”

You and I

heart fluttering

racing bubbles

up

naked tongues

in the mood

sweet, not crude

crumbling fractures one by one

 

liquid steaming

blowing bubbles

up

corners none

picking petals one by one

 

mouth watering

touching bubbles

up

creamy clouds

in the nude

sweet, not rude

breathing heavens one by one

Without Armour

A tin soldier lies in my bed, the last man standing

On a crusade; Denying flesh and blood,

But if f I am white then he is red.

I throw down-duvet over, not to divide,

I creep under as well, it is a cold night and

The boiler is bust but we are two.

Muscles are what he claims to be,

Well, at least it is better than steel

And I still drink that smell of sweat.

In the chapel of lost and found

She tries to lean her face against
a silky velvet chiffon scarf
but it is taken by the wind, although

there is no breeze no more
for this face, this flame. For this face
needs no breeze no more,
nor chewed almond kisses.

With bleeding hands she scrawls
hymns on the black board whilst
the cross stands silent witness.

She writes: When I return as a man
you might mistake me for a woman,
then sings that song before
wooden empty benches.

And the silence then, the silence
is so lonesome, longing
in all nights for a fragrance.

And the fragrance is the closest then,
so closed and silent.
