Our elderly

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

Our elderly saw us again
after the second death
and they lived through our gaze.
They were alone for their entire life
in company with the missing person.
But now we are here,
we are alone too, but together with them
in order to share the smile
of the condemned to death who had passed away.
