Perverted Passion

Someday I’ll remember of something so nice, it’ll be
autumn, in that narrow side-street with the glass shops, where
when we went bankrupt, father sold dream books—since then
I never got of the dream although I was cold, to at least fall into
my perverted passion: melancholy or crowding—because, let us
be honest, I never loved anybody and this tender glance of mine
was just for personal use
like the immortality of the poets.

Ανώμαλα Πάθη

Κάποτε θά θυμηθώ κάτι τόσο ωραίο, θά `ναι φθινόπωρο σ’
εκείνη τή μικρή πάροδο μέ τά υαλοπωλεία, εκεί πού, όταν ξεπέσα-
με, ο πατέρας πουλούσε ονειροκρίτες—από τότε δέν ξαναβγήκα απ’
τ’ όνειρο κι όμως κρύωνα, αλλά μπορούσα τουλάχιστο να παραδοθώ
στ’ανώμαλα πάθη μου: τή μελαγχολία ή τό συνωστισμό—γιατί,
άς είμαστε ειλικρινείς, εγώ κανένανν ποτέ δέν αγάπησα κι αυτό τό
τρυφερό βλέμμα μου ήταν γιά εντελώς ιδιωτική χρήση
σάν τήν αθανασία τών ποιητών.

Aligizakis Manolis

By Aligizakis Manolis

Manolis (Emmanuel Aligizakis) is a Greek-Canadian poet and author. He was recently appointed an honorary instructor and fellow of the International Arts Academy, and awarded a Master’s for the Arts in Literature. He is recognized for his ability to convey images and thoughts in a rich and evocative way that tugs at something deep within the reader. Born in the village of Kolibari on the island of Crete in 1947, he moved with his family at a young age to Thessaloniki and then to Athens, where he received his Bachelor of Arts in Political Sciences from the Panteion University of Athens. After graduation, he served in the armed forces for two years and emigrated to Vancouver in 1973, where he worked as an iron worker, train labourer, taxi driver, and stock broker, and studied English Literature at Simon Fraser University. He has written three novels and numerous collections of poetry, which are steadily being released as published works. His articles, poems and short stories in both Greek and English have appeared in various magazines and newspapers in Canada, United States, Sweden, Hungary, Slovakia, Romania, Australia, and Greece. He now lives in White Rock, where he spends his time writing, gardening, traveling, and heading Libros Libertad, an unorthodox and independent publishing company which he founded in 2006 with the mission of publishing literary books.
