Titos Patrikios – Selected Poems


Archilochus was saying to me:

“Translate them to my language

so I can finally read what you write.

I mainly want you to explain to me

these words that look Hellenic

although they confuse me.

Therefore what is the meaning of

television, governmental, technocracy?

Leave the other words as they are:

economy war, psychoanalysis

I too understand a few things”
