Free and headless

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

In the society of equality,
freedom was headless
and willingness prohibited.

Nobody dared anymore
to resist the system
of indifference and oblivion.

Then the dead decided
to die again
to lift the sun.

It was the only way
for the neighborhoods to smell
the innocence of basil.
