Tannery


The secrets of friends
Showed their dirty breath
at the old tannery
their smell stuck on the sticksαρχείο λήψης
nailed on the roof
so as not to fall and hurt the heart
the secrets of friends!
Saturday night
devastated area
they came by taxi
in the neighborhood
with a lame dog
looking in the garbage
there was not anyone around
to gather strays
secrets of friends
and I am sitting sceptical
on a soft pillow with a compalsion
supposedly I have nothing to say for my life no more!

Original Version of the poem “Tannery” wriiten by Sofia Piperou
from a collection of poems named “Tannery”
Βυρσοδεψείο

Τα μυστικά των φίλων
βγάλανε τη βρόμικη ανάσα τους
στο παλιό βυρσοδεψείο,
κόλλησε η μυρωδιά τους στα παλούκια
τα καρφωμένα στην οροφή,
μη πέσουν και πληγώσουν στη καρδιά
τα μυστικά των φίλων!
Σάββατο βράδυ
ερειπωμένος χώρος
ξεπρόβαλλαν με ένα ταξί
σε παλιογειτονιά
με ένα κουτσό σκυλί
να ψάχνει στα σκουπίδια
ψυχή δεν υπήρχε τριγύρω
για να μαζέψει τα αδέσποτα
τα μυστικά των φίλων ,
και εγώ καθόμουν σκεπτική
σε μαξιλάρι μαλακό με μια συμπόνια
τάχα δεν έχω τίποτα να πω για τη ζωή μου!
