Helios

edited repost, an oldie


I emerge barefoot from the nights’ fog,
Unafraid of the cold.
Somebody waits
Holding a pair of warm shoes.
“Time to put them on”
He says and starts running.
It is Helios.
I must catch him before dusk.
Not for the shoes,
I have to give him my coat.

 

 

Athens, circa 2006
