How do you fight the Golden Dawn
when Germany stole every stone you might have thrown
back in 2012?
What is left after the second world war,
Is it engineers,
What have you been doing for the past ten years
with this fertile ground?
Adam says you’ve wasted it.
Georgio my taxi driver tends to agree.
Am I misinterpreting a bitter reality for something
full of hope and possibility?
Am I taking these pictures and leaving you behind?
Am I taking your activism as my own crown? Am I to be absolved?
Sometimes I feel like I’m writing into a black hole.
And here you are writing on the walls.
We are saying similar things, but you don’t find fishmongers grumbling about me.
There are some places where you must go searching to find what you need to hear.
It seems not so with you, Athína.
