41349 - The Greek-Americans

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Athina Kehagias

The Greek-Americans
love their homeland
in a courteous manner
without imperfections
and they never allow
anyone to hurt her
because deep down
it constitutes the time reference
not merely of their existence
but also of their lives as such
because it gives substance
to the works
they produce
so that’s why when you learn
about the way they function
then you’ll comprehend
that they will always
even when wounded
by its inhabitants.
