For Lambros-Viktoras Maziotis Roupas’ birthday

Born behind prison bars, the visible ones, that hide the heavens

The human guards, the cops and crows, the patrons of quiet sleep were the midwife of yours

You celebrated your first birthday with the shadows cast by steel barriers…

Bourgeois democracy is so merciful…

Now it’s your second birthday, the starlight you’d never seen until now

With the horizon ahead of you extending to infinity

With dogs barking from afar

We wish you ardent years, seas resounding in your ears, thunders singing lullabies to you

The tide coming in and erasing your footsteps, on the sand…

With respect and love to those who did not regret what they ever dared to do

Honour and remembrance forever for Lambros Foundas

This goes out to Nikos, Pola and very young Lambros-Viktoras

The prison inmates of the 2nd wing of Larissa
