Endogram, poems by Dimitris P.Kraniotis.


Of verbal paroxysms
Within letters
Common or empty

In timid sentences
With hidden cries
Spatio-temporal discontinuity
Of exculpatory findings
In guilts of innocent

Illusive adventure
Of innermost conflicts
With defeated winners

Words are thirsty

The words are thirsty
And they drink wine
To get me drunk

I plow, I harverst
But now I keep quiet
Don’t let them put out
Like dried up curses
On dry grass

I’m breaking pitchers
With wet echo
To rest
In the heatwave
Without water
With a handfull of mistakes

List of survivors

Decorated dreams
With ideas of achievements
Full of missteps
Mistakes and guilt

You hang for earrings
Like a ghost of waves
That in the shipwrecks
Is lost
In myriad versions

Without ever
To be
On the list of survivors
Without ever
To be drowning
In people’s orders
