Θ’ αναφέρουμε και κάποια αποσπάσματα απ’ την μεταποίηση του Μενέλαου Καραγκιόζη απ’ το βιβλίο του Νάνου Βαλαωρίτη: “Απ’ τα κόκκαλα βγαλμένη”, απ’ τις εκδόσεις Νεφέλη, 1999.

(In this webpage we will also present parts of the ‘metapoetics’ of Menelaos Karagiozis, based on the book by the Greek poet Nanos Valaoritis “Απ’ τα κόκκαλα βγαλμένη”, from the publisher Nefeli, 1999).

Σελ. 79, ‘ΓΕΡΙΚΟ ΜΠΑΣΤΟΥΝΙ’

 

Ζωή που, ύστερα από καιρό πολύ, ξαναφαίνεται,
ώσπου ξαναχάνεται και πάλι ξαναφαίνεται η ανυπαρξία.
Η συκιά φορούσε μάσκα, σας ρώτησε:
πόσα σύκα  θα φάτε πάρα πολλά;
Είπε τα εξής:
‘Είναι ντροπή, άνθρωπος μορφωμένος σαν εσένα
όταν πέφτει τόσο χαμηλά ώστε να κλέβει τα σύκα μου’
σ’ ένα γεροντικό μπαστούνι
στηρίζουμε όλες μας τις ελπίδες
κάποια άτομα
πρέπει να καταδικαστούνε ισόβια
μπας και μάθουν ποιός είναι ο πρέπων τρόπος ζωής
μέσα σου κοινωνία
ανθρώπους
είμαι σίγουρος πως θα τους απογοητεύσεις μέλλον
σ’ εξαγόρασα θάνατε
πληρώνοντας με τη ζωή μου.
© 2015, Menelaos Karagiozis, Hellenic Poetry.
