Τσιγάρα με θέα // Cigarettes with a view

Έκλεισε το φως και σε μια σκιαΕίδα πως έγινα αμνόςΔαίμονες ούρλιαξαν σαν λύκοιΚαι είχα μείνει μοναχός Ολημερίς χαμογελάωΚάνω αεροπλάνα με φαγητάΜα να ξεσπάω το ξεχνάωΚαι κάπου πνίγομαι αργά Σήμερα ήθελα λίγο χώροΝα αναπνεύσω για μια στιγμήΚαι ανέβηκα πάνω στην ταράτσαΓια να αδειάσω τη σάκκα απ’το πρωί Κοίταξα γύρω και είδα χρώμαΣύννεφα που έμοιαζαν με χιόνιΚαι […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | 2 days to go…

What if nature did take over? What if plants grew on the remains of people’s version of meaning? What would be the proof that you ever existed? What would prove that you ever stood out? Who would be the judge of that and who would stay to celebrate the memory of you? I’ve never heard […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | 3 days to go…

I am not a photographer. I never wanted to become one. There are however times when you are walking on the street, listening to a beautiful song and as that perfectly intact sequence of words, notes and vocals gets your mind daydreaming, you find your eyes opening to find a random point in your surroundings. […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #23

The confinement of the body often unravels the darkest shades of one’s spirit. As the body feels threatened that it will get dehydrated it signals the brain to reach out for anything that could keep its juices running. This is probably why we are overwhelmed by a desire that cannot truly be addressed to one […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #20

Realising that the only way to track your days is a kind of diary you created but failed to keep always feels like a nice tap on the shoulder. The voice that addresses the matter after the tap usually says “Well done dear. This quarantine has blurred out your sense of time by spreading coffee […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #5

My entries feel somehow pointless. I guess today I am in no mood to actually write. Let’s  design a point though. The point will be how obscurely didactic the first series of words on a foreign language dictionary can be. The dictionary I used for today’s entry is a Hungarian-English dictionary that came to my […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #3

Have you ever felt that you have been exposed to an overload of information? Have you ever had to deal with the realisation that time has passed without you even realising it? Have you ever felt as if a wormhole has sucked half of your brain in it? What day was it today? You have. […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #2

I did not dare to shut an eye last night. My mind has probably placed a bet with Morpheus that I can stay sleepless until the bars of this prison are raised. The highlight of my night was the presence of an ambulance outside my house. It is a shame that blue, one of my […]

Quarantine | The Lockdown Version | Day #1

I freaked out. I shouted. I swallowed my voice ten times today. I pretended to be happy for some friends on the social media. I avoided the friends I have recently acquired. I avoided talking to anyone who sees me as anything but a friend. I avoided talking to my mother about anything that pisses […]
