A poem by Greek poet Dimitris P. Kraniotis:


 We ‘re naked now,

we donned the colors,

undressed words and voices,

we ‘re blind now,

we drank the light,

swam in death,

with alcohol and tobacco

in our luggage

we testified falsely,

forgetting who we are

we built our life on a bird

and we flew again,

simply we moved.


Dimitris P. Kraniotis
