CHAOS | Nikos-Alexis Aslanoglou

Where do we go in this welter
in the middle of the night
Beloved image
look
smile
travelling North
Ships and lights
across the sea
The road along the shore deserted
Where do we go
Why so sluggish the night
why so deep the sky
Darkness everywhere
the night denuded
Lucid image
lost in the night
Woebegone
we shall follow
the path
of stars
To each his own star
his own happiness
his own tears
No smile
nothing more
