To Marianna

When blue night mattresses

cover the city

Schizophrenia , depression , deception

they all cross the avenues

or rather swim in redness

the green rain stagnates

in the brothel's garden

the cat leaning on the stair

landing shuffles the deck of cards

a sweating Eros slides on a female

yet so manly river his signature

Monet .

Giorgos Vlachos
