Manolis Aligizakis,

Comfortable and cozy you are
safety of four walls
pasted in lavish satin
soft hues and golden threads
away from risk or battle
hammering just outside front flagstone
always calculating the ifs and whys
falling or losing
yet love beckons you
though you dare not embrace it
and affection dwells in your heart
though you dare not bestow it
onto your life’s dry petals

why are you here breathing?


Manolis Aligizakis
