Το μυστικό της μικρής διάρκειας | Χρήστος Βακαλόπουλος, 1988





- Ένα τραγούδι μπορεί να συνοψίσει μια ζωή, είπε η νεράιδα.
Ένα  μικρό δισκάκι μπορεί ν' αλλάξει έναν άνθρωπο...
Οι εταιρείες το κατάλαβαν αυτό κι εγκατέλειψαν τους μικρούς δίσκους,
τις κατέλαβε πανικός κι έσπρωξαν αυτούς τους δίσκους μεγάλης διαρκείας
για να θολώσουν  τα νερά και να ησυχάσουν τα πνεύματα.
Γνωρίζετε το μυστικό της μικρής διάρκειας;


Χρήστος Βακαλόπουλος, 
Νέες αθηναϊκές ιστορίες, 1988

Space | Louise Barritt (aged 8)

Your Weight in Outer Space

Swirling black holes and shooting stars
Jupiter, Mercury, Venus and Mars
Satellite signals beamed all around
Ending up back here on the ground

Thousands of miles away from us
You cannot get there by catching a bus!
A rocket you'll need to go that far
But it'll cost a little bit more than a car

Asteroid belts and the Milky Way
Zero gravity so you'll float away
Astronauts, comets and UFO's
Space is a place we'd all like to go

Without anxiety and illness I should have been like a ship 
without a rudder."

Raw With Love | Charles Bukowski



    little dark girl with 
    kind eyes 
    when it comes time to 
    use the knife 
    I won't flinch and 
    I won't blame 
    you, 
    as I drive along the shore alone 
    as the palms wave, 
    the ugly heavy palms, 
    as the living does not arrive 
    as the dead do not leave, 
    I won't blame you, 
    instead 
    I will remember the kisses 
    our lips raw with love 
    and how you gave me 
    everything you had 
    and how I 
    offered you what was left of 
    me, 
    and I will remember your small room 
    the feel of you 
    the light in the window 
    your records 
    your books 
    our morning coffee 
    our noons our nights 
    our bodies spilled together 
    sleeping 
    the tiny flowing currents 
    immediate and forever 
    your leg my leg 
    your arm my arm 
    your smile and the warmth 
    of you 
    who made me laugh 
    again. 
    little dark girl with kind eyes 
    you have no 
    knife. the knife is 
    mine and I won't use it 
    yet.

Raw With Love, Charles Bukowski

Τα μονοπάτια | Malcolm Lowry, 1961



"Πάντοτε υπήρχε κάτι το υπερφυσικό στα μονοπάτια, και ειδικά του δάσους - το ξέρω 
τώρα γιατί  διάβασα κάμποσα - επειδή όχι μόνο η λαϊκή παράδοση αλλά κι η ποίηση έχουν 
άφθονες συμβολικές ιστορίες γι' αυτά: μονοπάτια πού χωρίζονται και γίνονται δυo, μονοπάτια 
πού οδηγούνε στο θάνατο ή στη ζωή, μονοπάτια όπου συναντάς λύκους, και, που ξέρεις, ακόμα 
και λιοντάρια του βουνού, μονοπάτια όπου χάνεις το δρόμο σου, μονοπάτια πού όχι μόνο 
χωρίζονται, αλλά και γίνονται τα είκοσι ένα μονοπάτια πού οδηγούνε πίσω στην Εδέμ."


"Sometimes I felt our life together to be a kind of singing."

Malcolm Lowry, The Forest Path to the Spring, 1961

The Tyger | William Blake (1794)

Blake's original printing of The Tyger, 1795


Tyger! Tyger! burning bright 
In the forests of the night, 
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?

In what distant deeps or skies 
Burnt the fire of thine eyes? 
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand dare sieze the fire?

And what shoulder, & what art.
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?

What the hammer? what the chain?
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?

 When the stars threw down their spears,
 And watered heaven with their tears,
 Did he smile his work to see?
 Did he who made the Lamb make thee?

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?


The Tyger, William Blake
 (from Songs Of Experience)
  1794


You Will Hear Thunder | Anna Akhmatova (1889–1966)



You will hear thunder and remember me, 
And think: she wanted storms. The rim 
Of the sky will be the colour of hard crimson, 
And your heart, as it was then, will be on fire

That day in Moscow, it will all come true, 
when, for the last time, I take my leave, 
And hasten to the heights that I have longed for, 
Leaving my shadow still to be with you.

Anna Akhmatova, You Will Hear Thunder (1889–1966)
