“Anamoni” is the greek word for “Waiting”
“I am waiting. Don’t ask why. /Don’t ask why anyone/who has nothing to wait for/would wait anyway. Still he does. For if he stops waiting/ it is as if he stops looking at the sky/ stops hoping/ stops living. It’s unbearable. it’s bitter./ Slowly approaching the beach/ not as the castaway/ not as the savior/ but as the wreck.”
