Cyprian, in my waking dream

by Christos Polydorou

tree hug 3Centuries later,
we who dream of
Cyprian

are dreaming of the same Cyprian
Sappho
dreamt of,

and who inspired
her,
to write her poetry. Bend my body

toward love tonight
Cyprian,
risen from the foam
tree hug 2
of the
Cyprus Pafos sea,
bend my soul towards pleasure,

my spirt toward
beauty,
and my mind toward

procreation,
so it can get all sexed up
by god-thoughts

tonight,
and my poetry can send shivers
up and down my readers’ spines.
