6499 - Camus, the atopic one

N. Lygeros
Translated from the Greek by Evi Charitidou

He wasn’t atypical
because he was aware of the nature
of the communist party
and its capacity to tell lies.
He wasn’t utopian
because he bore
the bite of reality
and the stigma of the truth.
In a country without name
the first man lived
the anonymous war
to save the sun of love.
That was Camus, the atopic one.
