SAVE AS: MARILENA 1

Minoan

If you insist on going around
dressed
or rather undressed
like a Minoan priestess
in the middle of winter,
you will get ill.

And if you insist on going out
and enjoying yourself
when all around you
are saving money for a rainier day,
you will always be broke.

If you insist on being a poet,
and on looking at the world
with the eyes of a child,
you will see heaven –
but you will still get ill
and still always be broke.
