Yannis Ritsos’s “January 21”

I’m posting a series of poems and excerpts from poems and essay that I love. Today’s is Yannis Ritsos’s “January 21.” Oh, to have written that last image.

 

January 21

 

A cessation.

You’re not searching.

How nice it is tonight.

Two birds fell asleep in your pocket.
