Tasos Livaditis-Selected Poems, Translated by Manolis Aligizakis

cover

ΣΟΥΡΟΥΠΟ

 

Αν έχασα τη ζωή μου είναι γιατί πάντα είχα μιαν άλλη

ηλικία απ’ την αληθινή και τώρα πια τα `χω μπερδέψει — δεν

ξέρω αν βρίσκομαι στο τέλος ή στην αρχή, αν πρέπει να φύγω

ή να ξαναγυρίσω και ποιο δρόμο να πάρω και πού να πάω —

εξάλλου σκοτείνιασε

και τα σκυλιά γαβγίζουν, σταματώντας τους περαστικούς

στα σύνορα του ανείπωτου.

 

 

 

TWILIGHT

 

If I wasted my life it was because I had a different age

from the correct one and now I’m confused — I don’t know

whether I’m at the end or the beginning, whether I have

to leave or return, which path to follow and where to go?—

after all it has become dark

and the dogs bark stopping the passersby at the borders

of the unsaid.
