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



They hit me

since the beginning of the game.

I’m the cue ball.

My job is to guide

the other balls

to their positions

each to its place.

I’ll stay in the game

up to the end

my position

in the loneliness

of the immense green table.

I don’t match with

other balls.

Only the black ball

lonely like me

touches me a little

before the end of the game.
