Purchasing Valium In Mexico Σελιανιτικα 1996 in this room
faded lime green paint is chipped
touched-up photographs
remind me of the origins of my name ikons blessed at the village church
and a makeshift καντηλι
behind a hand-embroidered curtain
keep vigil over me

an old woman
who told me about the tidal wave
died like her final years
silently without a trace

in this room
where the only window looks onto a dusty store-room
I fall asleep alone
mid-winter by the sea
