Talking with Sakis

    by Cally Conan-Davies

My aunt is no longer

in her life he said,

as if her life remained

where she had left it,

holding the air behind

the soft click

of her last breath.

As if a life, as it were, could be ever

so gently woken

to breathe for a moment

here, by the pearl-grey bridge

where the quickening gulf

stands wide open.

(Antirrio, Greece, 2013)
