POEM #2

by Antonis Katsouris

a love story in THE SPEED OF LIGHT
a hate story IN A FIT OF REPUGNANCE

desire moves / eros is verb
tenderly traumatic / tenderly I tremble

a love story in which EVERYTHING IS PERMITTED
a hate story WILL BE SUSPENDED

flesh pink / person-to-person pink / heart of pink
mauve poppies / at the heart of the adonean garden

a love story THROUGH THE RECONFIGURATION OF IDENTITIES
a hate story by AN ERROR OF HANDLING LANGUAGE

on this page / I will wait for you / you will rewrite me
from the south of your mouth / from the I of my eye / from the pose of your nose

a love story RIPS ITSELF IN HALF PRODUCING A TWIN
a hate story FOR THE DURATION OF THE HOLIDAY

echo / you always make me / doubt
when is it late /  when is it too late?

a love story TWISTED FROM THE BEGINNING
a hate story EPIDEMIC TO THE END

a passive activity / an active passivity
my poor Daphne / how did you end up / a little green bush
