11143 - Red lily

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Red lily
in mind
and the memory
beyond the wounds
because it’s not the fault
of the imagination
nor of history
but of society
which does not want
to see a flower
but only
when cut
with the scythe
of barbarism
because it is afraid
both its color
and its innocence
which proves
that there was
a crime
against Humanity.
