The Island Of The Iron

written by: Sofia Kioroglou

@poet.gr

 

Big and rowdy,
loud and lovely,
it stands on my porch
sprawling with filiform tentacles
the thorn-armored canes
my bougainvillea uses as claws
to etch indelible memories of
unforgettable summers on Folegandros
outside Karavostasi, those wrist pataguinha tattoos
eternally scorched into my heart and mind
