Greece: A boy from home

Christmas at home, the fatherly home, as it is known, distinguishing the authority that gives name and meaning to things. I wake up with difficulty from mom’s entreaties, “to eat all together.” I also hear the grandfather’s voice from inside, so I know. I know precisely what I will face. I’ve lived it in almost […]

He says: […]


In these times of woe only the gangs of wild dogs are on their guard

Wearing cowboy boots monocles, redingotes they howl against the death and zero

Four (a poem)

We were born in the blackened metropolis of a society that served us strychnine with baby fruit puree

We danced our sorrows onto pedestrian streets filled with grief and reactionism and ran whenever we had to […]
