Neo – Hellene Poets, an Anthology of Modern Greek Poetry, 1750-2018

Poem by Kiki Dimoula


We wore the starry sky in our eyes

we embroidered the night

with hopeful flares

and we provided ourselves with consistency

we annulled our precaution

with the point of absolute

and we smuggled our silence

with the caique of the ephemeral

we set up the table of the unexpected

with two glasses, we made offerings to the possibility

and lighting the candle of sensitivity

next to our hearts

we read the lyrical telegram, which like all others

was full of truce or even peace,

and was brought by an enraptured and floodlit moment 

and was coordinated by our destiny

that ties us together with dignified tutelage
