The hidden reading

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou




With your tender fingers
you read over my body
the secret wounds
which my life has left.

And with your mouth
you touch the occupied parts
enslaved by the need
for the beauty' s sacrifice.

I am no longer the object
of the secret passion
but the text
of desire.

Body
motive
pretext
and shape.
