Curved swords

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Athena Kehagias

The curved swords were still slaughtering
but no one had noticed the blades.
They all had hidden hopes within them
while the last ones fell to the ground.
The names were changing, but not barbarism.
The Ephialtes were writing about neutrality.
Only masters who were aware of the past
resisted that prevalence at the present as well.
