           REDEFINING WORLD


               YOU NO LONGER KNOW
                     WHAT WINTER IS

                             English Version


                                     To my father


           You no longer know what winter is
           a winter of the Thermopylae kind
           the hatred
           sickened by love

           the road
           perspiring from medicine


           the cold
           in steam from water


           all this cold
           like the last unfinished
           speech at six


           the kind that discards me
           like a defeated soldier
           inoculated
           and kicked like tin cans


           that discards me
           with all the candy souls of radiators
