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

Poem by Kiki Dimoula


With our sense a slingshot

we slaughter the possibility

of our salvation

the collected experience carries the sin

the past drizzles

the hatred of fleeting inside us

Now the unaccomplished falls upon us

like the tempest

and we bathe in melancholy

as we wake up

to the merciless stress of the need
