Charging

older poem

When they ask me to finish
The story, I say: “No-one can
Do whatever he wants when there
Is life around him”, which is
Better than giving them what
They want. Some persist, some
Sulk, some others, charged
And usually charming, say:
“Enough is as good as a feast,
For now.”

Athens, 2007
