Αυτός που διαβάζει με όρους ανοχής μπορεί να με διαβάσει, αυτός που διαβάζει με όρους συμμετοχής όχι.

The one that reads with terms of tolerance can read me, the one that reads with terms of attendance can not.

Yannis Livadas - A Little Burial Prose for Jhadav Dasari (1937-2010)

Jhadav was ever unknown to me
But never a stranger though
I met him exactly seventeen years ago.
Cooking burial dust in his pot
He was saying singing to me
He wanted to get ready some day
To eat the flesh of a dead woman
Dressed in blue and loving as
A kingfisher bird.
The day I left him in Varanasi
He was quite obsessed with the idea
That he had never heard about
The existence of a man eater poet
In the west.
“Be the one!” he shouted at me
As a goodbye.
“I don’t like people that much”
I answered, “yet love them”.

Now I am doing quite
A thinking.



[An old friend Jhadav Dasari (Aghori-Shivaist)
died in Varanasi on March 4, 2010]
