The ocean of the moment

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou, Evi Charitidou




Goddess: When will the semi-god come?
Chiron: Yesterday! (Time) His feet touched Pelion.
Goddess: His feet... (Silence) And his heels...
Chiron: Silence...
Goddess: I will not tell the secret...
Chiron: The stigma of humaneness is not burnt.
Goddess: Then he will live to die...
Chiron: One single lesson...
Goddess: One single mistake...
Chiron: All into one!
Goddess: What can your wisdom teach him?
Chiron: Whatever he cannot learn from his rage: how to live the last days of immortality.
Goddess: But he is so young...
Chiron: But he is so old...
Goddess: How can he be both?
Chiron: The child that does not touch breasts grows up...
Goddess: (silently) Achilles...
Chiron: When you live so close to death, life...
Goddess: What life? (Time) The moment!
Chiron: So every moment is life!
Goddess: Who wants to live for a moment?
Chiron: Every human...
Goddess: Every mortal!
Chiron: Everyone if it is the last one!
