Adonis Fostiris

The Body

The body quickly abandons strange bodies
blindly turning in a nest of dark heat.
There it will divy the erotic grasses
in the leaves it will wrap the kisses.
The body is an animal grazing on memories,
erasing recollections in the waters of its solitude.
The body feeds on nostalgic locusts.
The body quenches its thirst with tears.

Translated from the modern Greek by Anastasios Kozaitis
