Ημερολόγια Εξορίας//Exile Diaries

25 Νοεμβρίου//25 of November

Οι δικοί μας είναι μακριά.

Τα γράμματα λίγα.

Οι μύγες ψοφάνε απ’ το κρύο.

Τις βλέπουμε να πέφτουν στο πάτωμα.

Ύστερα τις σκουπίζουμε.

25th of November

Our relatives are far away.

Correspondence is difficult.

The flies die in the cold

we see them falling on the floor

then we sweep them away.
