POEM RECITAT ÎN CADRUL FESTIVALULUI INTERNAȚIONAL DE POEZIE ONLINE - THEODOR DAMIAN, NEW YORK

Theodor Damian, New York

 

Heraclitus

 

When I fell down into the evening service

and the angels supported me

not to hit my leg

against the stone

I understood why Heraclitus was given

the midnight service

we could not carry it along and across

yet for you to understand this

you would need a Caiaphas and a cross

you would need to stay

in the evening emptiness

till the end

and endlessly

till the snakes will come behind you

to deliver you from the evil

one

Heraclitus had another finding

he wandered among celestial expanses

and grasped the meaning of these universes

we locked the emptiness

behind the bars of our cities

not to be afraid anymore

of serpents and heat

but of ourselves

and of one another
