27973 - The pigeon torture

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athena Kehagias

The pigeon torture
where the prisoner
in the concentration
of North Korea
has his hands tied
behind his back,
his legs
tied together
and he is hung
from the ceiling
for many days,
is not
an aspect of spirit
but an act
of barbarism
anticipated by a system
which doesn’t respect
any human
