The myth of the bastard

N. Lygeros

Translated from the Greek by Angeliki Papadopoulou, Evi Charitidou


Father, you stole my immortality
and you, my mother, my humaneness.

Father, you endowed me with sacrifice
and you, my mother, with solitude.

And I
the monster of fire
a divine mortal,
a mortal god.
