I don’t know her.
We never met.
My laughter falls in place of tears,
concealing amazement at vanity’s cruelty.
In this ghost city,
were words bullets,
corpses would grin from each cafe,
ignorant of their own assassination.
Words are bullets,
Ego speaks and the words strike,
spiritual blood spilled indiscriminately.
Life drains away,
VAK – Athens, 1989
