Tree for a day

image

If you asked me,
Christos,

What would you
like to be,

for a day:
a king?

A dictator?
A prince?

Don’t say Jesus
that way

ever
again.

In Cyprus
we are named

after saints
and Jesus

was the one
my mother

chose for me.
I have to respect

her choice
but I suppose

it comes
with some

responsibility.
I cannot walk

on water
because it has

been done
before

so I could be the
artist

who changes
into a tree

and back
into human again

at will.
