35614 - Since painting

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

Since painting
does you good
then continue,
because it’s
one way
for your silence
to speak out
and to keep
a trace
of your thoughts
from the social
and closer
to the humane,
so simply
don’t stop
what helps you
because you live
in actuality
without illusions
the reality
which reaches out to you
in order for you to see
the continuity.
