The new voice

Greece, 1964
Ink on paper

I am here now
I stand by your door
Soon my voice
will fill your rooms

I am the one you have been expecting
and feared
I am the reason
you installed locks
and set up thresholds
But also the reason
you refused to let the flowers die

Soon I will take the step
and nothing will ever be the same
in your house

When my hands unfold
you make the final decision

I am here now
Never again shall I stand
by your door
