Σε μια γωνιά

Άτακτο μικρό χαρτάκι
που γυρνάς και τρέχεις
μες την πόλη την υγρή
σε ποια λακκούβα θες να μπεις
σε ποιο χαντάκι να βρεχτείς
ποιος σε τσαλάκωσε 
μικρή λευκή επιφάνεια
γιατί επέλεξες να ζεις 
μέσα στον τρισδιάστατο κόσμο μου
τώρα ποια λερώθηκες 
είσαι βρεγμένο
τσαλακώθηκες απ' τις συνθήκες 
και όμως παραδέρνεις 
σαν μικρό παιδί που αναζητά μια αγκαλιά
μα πια ποια αγκαλιά να σε δεχτεί
ποιος σκοπός να σε κάνει σύμβολο
αυτή την ώρα έχεις βραχεί 
σχεδόν έχεις τρυπήσει 
είσαι τώρα μόνο
τόσο άδικα χαμένο
μέσα στην μεγάλη πόλη
κανείς δεν έγραψε ποτέ επάνω σου
κανείς δεν σε μόλυνε με τις σκέψεις του 
είσαι παρθένο, 
μα φαίνεσαι τόσο βρώμικο 
τόσο μόνο
εκεί 
σε εκείνη την μικρή βρώμικη γωνιά του κόσμου 
εκεί 
σε εκείνο το μικρό σοκάκι που βρέχει
εκεί
δίπλα στον νεκρό ανθρώπινο εαυτό σου
