Manolis Aligizakis

Panoramic view
through your eastern window

toward the plaza where
the naked statue of Eros

gleams in the sunlight
and you feel the urge

to run and cover it with
a white bed-sheet

unstained from last night’s
orgasmic song

shame that young, innocent

children see him

with his eyes wide open
and his indiscernible erection
