The Fig Tree Will Bear Fruit ​ Going around in circles My compass is broken Disoriented, I search for the Light My egocentrism, a crippling neurosis Cut off from the Life My visceral putrefaction A vicious cycle of sinuous entanglement Of subjective schemas and delusions Like the tax collectors and the prostitutes I beseech youContinue reading “The Fig Tree Will Bear Fruit by Sofia Kioroglou”
