Katerina Gogou – Reciting from her poem “Loneliness”

  1. Wonderful woman, artist, actress e poetry.
    Femminista e rivoluzionaria.
    Donna forte e triste.

      Don’t you stop me. I am dreaming.
      We lived centuries of injustice bent over.
      Centuries of loneliness.
      Now don’t. Don’t you stop me.
      Now and here, for ever and everywhere.
      I am dreaming freedom.
      Though everyone’s
      All-beautiful uniqueness
      To reinstitute
      The harmony of the universe.
      Lets play. Knowledge is joy.
      Its not school conscription.
      I dream because I love.
      Great dreams in the sky.
      Workers with their own factories
      Contributing to world chocolate making.
      I dream because I KNOW and I CAN.
      Banks give birth to “robbers”.
      Prisons to “terrorists”.
      Loneliness to “misfits”.
      Products to “need”
      Borders to armies.
      All caused by property.
      Violence gives birth to violence.
      Don’t now. Don’t you stop me.
      The time has come to reinstitute
      the morally just as the ultimate praxis.
      To make life into a poem.
      And life into praxis.
      It is a dream that I can I can I can
      I love you
      And you do not stop me nor am I dreaming. I live.
      I reach my hands
      To love to solidarity
      To Freedom.
      As many times as it takes all over again.
      I defend ANARCHY

      • pity that there are no other works of her translated, at least in Italy.

      • A 2021 edition, in English, sigh, “Now Let’s See What You’re Gonna Do: Poems 1978-2002” (The Divers Collection) is available through Amazon. The revolutionary American poet, Jack Hirshman, wrote the intro and Greek compatriot, A. S. translated. Perhaps you would like this?

      • Oh, Thank you, my sweet dear. I can buy it in Amazon. I’m happy. :))

      • This also makes me happy — an image of you reading her book . . .

        that’s interesting giving the closeness of geography and themes, pity indeed

    • her life is testimony to how to stay human and each word of what you write, achingly true. kisses, my treasured friend
