Did you see
The the lost kites
Up there floating
In the cold wind
Swirling with
Scraps of paper in
The dark winter sky?

fiery_night_400Flying over
Grey girders
Of a steel skyscraper
Hollow and bare
Like a skeleton
Silhouetted against
The dark sky.

As the bums
Poured red muscatel
Out of brown paper bags,
And a sole melancholy
Saxophone echoed
In back alleyways
And empty streets.

Did you see
The lost kites
And scraps of papers
Swirling under the
Dark clouds with
A luminous shade
Dancing slowly
Under thunderclaps?
That’s my soul
Up there.

Floating, swirling
Flying over the grey
City and steel shells
Of abandoned temples
And half completed buildings,
Open and confessing
To the sky in the
Soaking rain.

Did you see
That glowing shade?
That’s my soul up there
Flying out to sea
Up through the stars
And out into space.

Unfurled, flapping
Rebellious and free.


With a digital drawing from Nikos Laios
