38056 - When you kiss

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Vicky Baklessi

When you kiss the hand
of the priest
you follow
the priesthood
of the teaching
of Christ
because he is
its representative,
don’t see it
as an act
which reduces you
on the contrary
as an act
of resistance
to systems
which encroached
on humans
due to ideology
because they wanted
to enslave
without having
the help
of the sacred.
