Η ΠΟΛΙΣ

Η ΠΟΛΙΣ

Η ΠΟΛΙΣ

Είπες` «Θα πάγω σ’ άλλη γη, θα πάγω σ’ άλλη θάλασσα.

Μια πόλις άλλη θα βρεθεί καλλίτερη από αυτή.

Κάθε προσπάθεια μου μια καταδίκη είναι γραφτή`

κ’ είν’ η καρδιά μου – σαν νεκρός – θαμμένη.

Ο νους μου ως πότε μες στον μαρασμόν αυτόν θα μένει.

Όπου το μάτι μου γυρίσω, όπου κι αν δω

ερείπια μαύρα της ζωής μου βλέπω εδώ,

που τόσα χρόνια πέρασα και ρήμαξα και χάλασα».

Καινούργιους τόπους δεν θα βρεις, δεν θάβρεις άλλες θάλασσες.

Η πόλις θα σε ακολουθεί. Στους δρόμους θα γυρνάς

τους ίδιους. Και στες γειτονιές τις ίδιες θα γερνάς`

και μες στα ίδια σπίτια αυτά θ’ ασπρίζεις.

Πάντα στην πόλι αυτή θα φθάνεις. Για τα αλλού – μη ελπίζεις –

δεν έχει πλοίο για σε, δεν έχει οδό.

Έτσι που τη ζωή σου ρήμαξες εδώ

στην κώχη τούτη την μικρή, σ’ όλην την γη την χάλασες.
