DELPHI

Scattered in the nostalgia of the times,

survive, live Delphi.

As ephemeral as it is eternal,

as recondite as hospitable,

as mysterious as it is revealing.

I reincarnate myself in that pilgrim,

two thousand five hundred years behind me,

I return to purify myself in the waters of Castalia,

I sleep in the open in the ravine of Pleistos

and I speak the usual gods,

from Apollo to Gea, from Zeus to Athena.

And I have a query for the Pythoness:

"To what heaven will my ramshackle being go

when the blackness devours me? "

I await the revealing tablet.

The priest arrives. He gives it to me.

"Your soul is the promised heaven."
