City Of Nations


The morning star has not been seen

for a long time.

In the earthly paradise

there is no space for all

Filled with false prophets

blank messages

and untold truths.

There are many arrows in our quiver,

amulets that release hypotonic outbursts.

Hollow contradictions in the city of nations…





We became simple time frames…

Like the endless hours that stabbed us

and the cold sunsets that dominated our bodies.

Now we imagine real ornaments,

in our prominent places

communicating liquid powder.

You deny the rain,

dried up.

You say you do not tolerate the wind

Τhe nature that fights you

Τhe world that competes with your glory

Υour selfishness

 Surpassed you


Betrayed you…
