38793 - The religious book

N. Lygeros
Translated from Greek by Athina Kehagias

He had read
the religious book
during that night
at the kafenion
amongst
drinks
cigarettes
table football
and billiards,
nothing could
distract
his attention
as little
as he seemed
to others
only the grandfather
had understood
the difference
as he had seen
the glance
of acquisition
and not merely
of reading.
