Days of Kindness
Greece is a good place
To look at the moon, isnt it?
You can read by moonlight
You can read on the terrace
You can see a face
As you saw it when you were young
There was good light then
Oil lamps and candles
And those little flames
That floated on a cork in olive oil
What I loved in my old life
I havent forgotten
It lives in my spine
Marianne and the child
The days of kindness
It rises in my spine
And it manifests as tears
I pray that a loving memory
Exists for them too


The precious ones I overthrew
For an education in the world

Hydra, 1985

In the case of dictatorial regimes the beginning may seem easy, but tragedy awaits...
 It seems the inescapable fate of man to make each other’s life intolerable
