Last moments before darkness

Ritsos Yannis 
 Completeness Almost
You know, death doesn’t exist, he said to her.
I know, yes, now that I’m dead, she answered.
Your two shirts are ironed, in the drawer.
The only thing I’m missing is a small rose

Translated by  Edmund Keely  “Yannis Ritsos: Repetitions, Testimonies, Parentheses ”
