Ρούλα Αλαβέρα, Η πόλη που ζω

Βίκυ Παπαπροδρόμου: ό,τι πολύ αγάπησα (ποίηση, πεζογραφία & μουσική)

Λουκιανός Κηλαηδόνης & Κωστούλα Μητροπούλου, Η πόλη μας
(τραγούδι: Μανώλης Μητσιάς / δίσκος: Η πόλη μας (1970))

Η πόλη που ζω

Αυτή η πολιτεία καλλιεργεί τη μοναξιά μου
Επιβάλλει το βήμα μου να’ ναι πίσω
Εξαναγκάζει την καρδιά
Αυτή η πόλη γίνεται χώρα μοναδική
με τα καλντερίμια, τις γραμμές των τραμ
τους στρατιώτες της στα φυλάκια
Αυτή η χώρα μου μ’ εξαγοράζει

Κρύβομαι ανάμεσα σε σοκάκια
Λένε πως η μοναξιά
ζει με τους πεθαμένους
πως τα σπίτια που περιτριγυρίζονται
με κάγκελα, είναι σπίτια νεκρών.
Όνειρα με φωταγωγημένες εκκλησίες
και φρούτα παράκαιρα.
Τα πόδια εξακολουθούν να βαδίζουν.

Artemis(Roman Equivalent: Diana) is often depicted in two ways: as a huntress goddess and as the goddess of the Moon. 

Artemis/Diana by Jean-Antoine Houdon (18th century) Artemis/Diana by Jean-Antoine Houdon (18th century)

Artemis was the first-born child of Zeus and Leto. Her mother was forbidden by jealous Hera to give birth anywhere on the earth but the floating island of Delos provided her sanctuary. Immediately after her birth, Artemis helped her mother deliver Apollo for which she is sometimes called a goddess of childbirth.

Her twin brother Apollo was similarly the protector of the boy child. Together the two gods were also bringer of sudden death and disease: Artemis targeted women and girls, Apollo men and boys.
Artemis was officially the goddess of the Hunt, but because the Titans had fallen, the Titan Selene
