Πρώτα η Γλώσσα

ρ δ’ μς οκ ξ σου τν λεγντων τν κρασιν ποιουμνους, λλ τος μν προσχοντας τν νον, τν δ’ οδ τν φωνν νεχομνους. κα θαυμαστν οδν ποιετε• κα γρ τν λλον χρνον εἰώθατε πντας τος λλους κβλλειν, πλν τος συναγορεοντας τας μετραις πιθυμαις.

The Hellenic drama

The Hellenic drama (A poem by Yannis Politopoulos written in English with Greek words) : In agony to apologize In the hysteria of our prophetic epitaph. The ecstasy of the economic ideology organizes the throne of misery. But Poetry always embarks to her lyrical rhythm without jealousy for her expatriation.

Before your eyes

And you 're away

further than the kiss

further than the world

further than the words


My bed is narrow
it doesn't hold the clouds
the seashore
the sun
the photos in black and white
the love's burden

Harsh beards grow quickly
brows grow
desires are multiply

But you always live
in a swaying
in an anti-narrative gap
in a strange desertion
from the acceptable versions
of reality

I remember that before your eyes
a word sought to take place
at the window of a poem

                           Yannis Politopoulos
