Titos Patrikios – Selected Poems


The stars go crazy and spume

like the soldier who had

an epileptic attack during the exercises.

Was it true or he pretended?

However he didn’t escape the exercises

by going to the camp hospital.

We shall never escape if we get sick or die.

I wanted to say this to the man next to me

but he kept on singing marching paeans.
