Book “The leaky ceiling”

In 2005 my first poetry book published from “Erhodios” publications with title "The leaky ceiling" that includes 37 poems of 2000 -2005.





Shoes
Who eliminated the people
from the street?
Shoes have remained in the pavements
By habit, they copy
the movement, they walk
They are led to the pedestrian crossings,
stop at the traffic lights

and then they keep on.
The entire city chrap-chroup
Chrap chroup
swallowed the language of noise.
No-one had anything to say beforehand.

In the exile

You took the world
to suck it in one piece
and found yourself exiled
with a cigarette in the balcony
Not here, only there
in the streets the exile will smash you.
The stone throwing didn't move consciences
The fists hurt you, they enlarged the wall
The posters faded, you expected them to scream
not even the signs did they yell on the wall,
they were covered with advertisements
The verses engraved you
wrinkle by wrinkle I measure your poems
You took your eyes,
you kept them in the small box of your eyeglasses
You took your hands you folded them
with the flag in the drawer
You took your ears and you sealed them,
in the exile, you said, one does not need many.

Book “Nightly Complications"

In 2008 my new poetry book “Nightly Complications” was published by “Erodios” publications that includes 43 poems of 2006 -2008.




Red circle As if I'm watching youstaining a red circle on the wall.
The ochre is getting dislodged,
the colours
that the tenants had dyed on through the years
are spilling.
The adhesive of the old posting
is gushing out of the circle
along with all the sperm which was giving birth to ideas.
You are trying to understand
what you've done to the wall;
history is constantly being poured
on the pavement, on the asphalt.





Angels of murder
Angels of murder
in the nights of love,
pull the cast-off clothes
under your feet.
They slide inside them,
kill
your last breaths.
You blaze and melt
over your dead clothes,
trickle into the eyes
that stare at you through the sleeves,
through the ruptured zippers.
