Odysseus



Odysseus
(for George Seferis)


the immortal Odysseus, still wandering,
caught sleepwalking between the whirlpools of bars
and the clashing rocks of the red-light district:
this eternal homefinder, drunk again,
if he ever woke from his vagrant dissolution,
so hard to meet his sun-borne eyes.

up, old man: bounce home off the alley walls.
sleep is the key, and dreams of Ithaka.
