Manolis Aligizakis

Body dives in La-Z-Boy
wine glass in hand and remote
control flickering scenarios

idly looking for
meaning in a football game

or the old movie its trivia
mesmerizing your mind
belly button ready to explode

emptiness in your packed schedule
need for new larger belt and

you think: bring another round
bring another bottle just let me
forget soldiers in battle

the muddy barricade let me
forget hungry people on the sidewalk
worrying never makes
one happier or fatter

From the book “VORTEX
just released by Libros Libertad
