39503 - You didn’t know

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

ΣTo Panagiotis Potagos

You didn’t know
that as much as you were exploring
this harsh world
there would’ve never been
an acknowledgment
of your greatness
because for you
the ruins
and the region
weren’t enough
you wanted
the existence of works
by us as well
which was proportionately worthy
be aware
that all
you’ve discovered
belongs hereon
to the entire
and that finally
this constitutes your homeland
so that your contribution
could be accommodated for
