By Franco Beltrametti 2

translated by Stefan Hyner

On a truck
from Heraklion
eating little bananas
to suppress the tooth ache
in the back pack a blanket
a knife a wind breaker
a can of cornedbeef
black bread two lemons
Kaddish by Allen Ginsberg
Antigone by Sophokles
and La Source grecque
by Simone Weil
  get out in Malia
     where, of the antique city
         between the sea and high bare mountains
            nothing remains anymore
