translation by Manolis Aligizakis

____Then the other one came, he carried an old ravished valise,
in which he hid all the ghosts of his life, that they never needed
chase after him,
____we were in the same stuffy room and the large animal sawn
on the carpet was already biting our knees,
____“mother”, I asked at some-time, “where can we find some water for
my horse?”, “but I don’t see any horse”, “you too, mother!”,
____a line of candles was on both sides of the hallway and at
the far end the store that sold old music instruments hanging
from the ceiling like the destitute, and in the middle the merchant,
old and dirty, on his knee would wound up the dead arm,
“they fooled us” I cried, “they gave us another house”,
but no-one was around, only one hairpin on the tiles, like
a small insect that as I tried to touch it flew and vanished
through the window.
____And all night long we heard the blacksmiths preparing the nails
as if there was a Christ among the three of us.

Ο ΤΡΙΤΟΣ

____Τότε ήρθε κι ο άλλος, κρατούσε μιά παλιά φθαρμένη βαλίτσα,
όπου έκρυβε τά φαντάσματα τής ζωής του, γιά νά μήν κάνουν τόν
κόπο νά τόν κυνηγούν,
____ήμασταν στό ίδιο πνιγηρό δωμάτιο, καί τό μεγάλο ζώο πού ήταν
ζωγραφισμένο στό χαλί μάς έτρωγε κιόλας τά γόνατα,
____“μητέρα, ρώτησα κάποτε, πού μπορούμε νά βρούμε λίγο νερό γιά
τ’ άλογό μου;”, “μά δέ βλέπω κανένα άλογο”, “κι εσύ μητέρα!”,
____μιά σειρά κεριά ήταν κι απ’ τίς δυό μεριές τού διαδρόμου, καί
στό βάθος τό σκοτεινό μαγαζί πού πουλούσε παλιά μουσικά όργανα
κρεμασμένα απ’ τό ταβάνι, σάν τούς φτωχούς, καί στή μέση ο
παλαιοπώλης, γέρος καί βρόμικος, κούρντιζε πάνω στά γόνατά του
τό πεθαμένο χέρι, “μάς γέλασαν, φώναξα, μάς έδωσαν άλλο σπίτι”,
μά δέν υπήρχε κανείς γύρω, μονάχα μιά φουρκέτα κάτω στίς
πλάκες σάν ένα μικρό έντομο, πού μόλις έκανα νά τήν αγγίξω
πέταξε καί χάθηκε απ’ τό παράθυρο.
____Κι όλη τή νύχτα ακούγαμε τούς σιδεράδες πού ετοιμάζαν τά
καρφιά, σάν νά υπήρχε κάποιος Ιησούς ανάμεσα στούς τρείς μας.

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.
