N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

With his work
Michel Angelo
the statue
from the marble
so that
the body
would be obvious,
we’re carving
the spirit
so that
the soul
may appear
which has
been trapped
on its own
in the occupied territories
of the mind
merely because
it never saw
the depth
of the Teaching.
