Poem of the Day
  • Poem of the Day: Epic
    It's you I'd like to see Greece again with
    You I'd like to take to bed of cyclamen
    You know I nurse a certain myth
    about myself              that I descend
    de tribus d'origine asiatique
    and am part Thracian or Macedonian
    cleaving to a Hellenic mystique
    after centuries' migration inland

    a full moon             rising over the Acropolis
    I can repeat the scene        this time à deux
    as then I had no one to kiss
    slicing halloumi amid the hullabaloo
    of a rooftop taverna in   July
    The doors that opened to lovers
    pulled like tree roots from darkness        I
    close upon us now like book covers

    The alcove in which we embrace
    is cool with brilliant tile
    and weirded by a dove's note       chase
    of ouzo with Uzi          junta-style
    History makes its noise      we duck
    till it passes      Love we think is our due
    Not we think like the epoch
    the unchosen thing we're wedded to
