    Waiting in vain For the advice of the deceased

    Poems

    At unexpected moments I have the urge to write down a thought that insistently comes

    to the conscious. Later on, this thought is processed and takes a form. I concluded that I

    write due to a need for expression but also due to a need for communication. This

    collection of poems is the first complete effort to communicate with a larger number of

    people. To be honest with you, I fear this development.

    Having major deficiencies in philological issues, it is not easy for me to classify this

    work in a literary form. I chose to classify it as poetry since it seems to me that poetry is

    broad enough to embrace many forms of expression. I assume that it can also embrace

    mine.

    I decided to also use the surname Avgerakis to honor an unknown ancestor who came

    from Crete and married in Kesani of Eastern Thrace.

    I dedicate my work to the persons that I loved. Fortunately for me, they were many.

    EYES

    The sky turned gray

    and the changes became apparent

    in the shapes and colors

    and my thoughts

    Is it true, I asked

    that the eyes are getting old

    they harden and they dim

    and they lose their voice?

    A PLEA

    Help me,

    protect me from humanity

    take me away from their bigotry

    I do not want to be shaped.

    Fire and screams

    in all my dreams

    and the nights are without dawn.

    ENDLESS EUPHORIA

    So what if our days are bitter

    and our nights merciless?

    We already covered the distance

    between the conscious and the unconscious.

    Nothing will be capable to upset

    the illusion of our endless euphoria.

    RUINS

    Ruins that I loved

    among the trees,

    loose fragments

    from old marble

    forever tied

    to their time

    What is to remain

    of the condominiums?

  • [16]

    UNAPPROACHABLE TRUTH

    How expensive is the truth,

    although I vastly spent for mine

    it still remains unapproachable.

    DREAM OF THE LAST SPRING

    Find a clean corner for me

    all I can and all I wish

    give it all to me one night.

    One of these springs,

    one of these dreams,

    will be the last one.

    THE RED OF FIRE

    The fire does not frighten me

    I am not afraid of the pain

    it is only the red,

    this formidable color,

    that awakens my flesh

    and then it dries it

    as life evaporates

    though my pores.

    FEAR OF DEATH

    Do not embitter your life

    with the farcical fears of death

    that will come, that comes, that arrived.

    NEMESIS OF FELLOW HUMANS

    How can we escape

    from the rage of people

    that wasted their lives

    reducing their passions

    to the measure of today?

    ;

    OBLIGATION TO LOVE

    Tireless lover of humanity

    do you really have to love us?

    DESTINIES OF GIRLS

    Girls do not dream

    do not be misled by the graces.

    Because the pain of alienation

    cannot be rationalized,

    because the Christmas ornaments

    brake irrespective of color

    and our sharp quill

    pierces the young female earlobes

    to put on earrings.

    WHO WILL DIE FIRST

    I have seen this city once before

    the streets are narrow, the buildings are tall

    the light hardly reaches the walkways

    the young emerge from the coffee shops full of certainties

    and they talk and they play

    who is the one that will die first?

    I have seen this city once before

    rotten are its rulers

    and its subjects even more so

    they talk and they play

    who is the one that will die first?

    And me, I am sinking into their games

    and I talk and I play

    which one of us, is the one that will die first?

    END OF PASSION

    How did our passion reach to that,

    in front of the machine that counts

    in front of the machine that computes

    in front of the machine that decides?

    CHANGE OF RESIDENCE

    Unsure about the certainties he had up to now

    he moved hesitantly

    and opened the small locker.

    He saw nothing, and he was relieved

    the uncertainty has changed residence.

    THE SMALL APPLE OF DISCORD

    Proud for the superiority of her gender

    she said:

    I will fight for the small apple of discord. The big one is already taken by the men.

    WINGS ON THE SHOULDERS

    Do not place wings on your shoulders

    you will be scared by the curvature of the earth.

    HUMAN QUALITY

    He looked at his diplomas on the wall

    resting comfortably inside the beautiful frames

    and the others, the more colorful,

    certificates of seminar attendance.

    His eyes stopped

    on the four principles of quality

    white letters on a blue background

    behind the glass armor,

    on the pictures

    depicting the congratulations he received

    from the managers of his managers.

    Content, he thought:

    I therefore fulfill all the criteria of success

    and I am certain that

    (although this is not easy to prove)

    I have the best human qualities.
