Wheat Ears – Selected Poems

From the book SECOND ADVENT OF ZEUS

Catharsis

And time for my catharsis came

vague redeemer that I was holding up

my body erected next to the icons

before the whip took aim at my back 

feeble churchgoers had kneeled

nightingale started its composition

no one ever knew what it meant

yet deep in their consciousness

a glimmer of hope shone

like a soul lost in darkness

and begged for its deliverance

when time for my catharsis came
