Poetry

by Christos Polydorou

Poetry 

is the moment 

we break off the food chain 

and hurtle into space, 

bringing back 

universal truths, 

my love; 

in my heart, 

it matters to me, 

most, that we can all, 

all of us, 

carry ourselves through the root 
of our bodies :

into a new transcendence 

through an old hell, 

a new heaven. 
I wore my best shoes for this.

I regret nothing.

Dance with me?

Duck. The stars

are low tonight. Hammering.
