‘…in continuation’ : A poem for our insurrectionary comrade Mauri

A poem for our insurrectionary comrade Mauri:

by Tsakalaki

for Punky Mauri

…in continuation

Mauricio I don’t profess to know you
either your moment of pain
in Santiago that night
amongst stillness
just before the storm returns
in the eye of the conflict
we are both blown within
your poems exposed the wound
once more
opening the emotions covered for too long
realising the eternal burning sun inside
the melting of glaciers from the heart
somewhere, somewhere
amongst another burning barricade
I embraced existence
once again along with you
not in memory
in continuation
