The gaze of resurrection

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou

At first, I didn't understand what you were staring at.
The future or the past?
I did not know.
Surely you expected something from me.
War or peace?
I didn't find out.
But your gaze remained pinned.
To memory and passion.
Never mind.
You saw the knight without armor.
Dead and alive.
You did not cry.
