A Short Story


Miltos Sachtouris original poem
Translated by Nick Trakakis

The café where I drink my coffee
is empty
only I exist
and so the café is completely empty
because not even I exist.

This poem was written by leading Modern Greek poet, Miltos Sachtouris (1919-2005),
I am grateful to Kedros Publishing for permission to translate and publish these poems.
