the Dragon Earrings
I approached the most colorful stall. The marketplace was full of them, at least fifty tented tables side by side. They all sold the same things; fake diamond earrings, bracelets with evil eyes, gold painted necklace charms with Arabic prayer writings, coins and keys colored and artificially decayed to give an antique impression, cheap rubber wristwatches, paper daisy crowns, wind up toys Made in China. The sly sellers shouted in unison "Everything only 10 liras! Will never find better quality for so cheap anywhere else!" with their thick Turkish accents. The sentence most probably memorized, I doubted they knew only a handful of English words anyway. As I went past each, getting caught in their radar, one by one I became the subject of their shouts "Madam! You pay 7. We have a deal?" when I didn't even pay as much as a glance their way, they immediately decreased the price "5 for you, very special lady. Where are you from?" as if they really cared. As I walked to that one stall that a

the Siren
7th of June
I`m seated on the porch enjoying my yogurt with honey and nuts, listening to Poseidon roar, shading my eyes with a straw hat from Apollo and enjoying the salty breeze sent by Zeus lick my face. Everything in this setting feels so mystical even though I know it would have felt the same if I were in Martha`s Vineyard instead, a thousand miles away. But I didn`t pay my travel expenses and it`s my first time away from my home country. I might as well go ahead and delude myself into thinking this island is indeed mystical even if it`s not…
As to why I`m in the island of Symi, in a desolate lagoon quite apart from the lively touristic town cited all the way across of the island; I`m here to write. To come up with a masterpiece that will get me famous, or at least will gain me a place in the community of writers and publishers. Hah!
The house belongs to Giorgos, an acquaintance –by now more of a friend- from college. In Boston we didn`t know each other very well. Up u

I'm reviewing my library. Adding and subtrackting things. Hope you like it.





It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
And this maiden she lived with no other thought
Than to love and be loved by me.

I was a child and she was a child,
In this kingdom by the sea;
But we loved with a love that was more than love-
I and my Annabel Lee;
With a love that the winged seraphs of heaven
Coveted her and me.

And this was the reason that, long ago,
In this kingdom by the sea,
A wind blew out of a cloud, chilling
My beautiful Annabel Lee;
So that her highborn kinsman came
And bore her away from me,
To shut her up in a sepulchre
In this kingdom by the sea.

The angels, not half so happy in heaven,
Went envying her and me-
Yes!- that was the reason (as all men know,
In this kingdom by the sea)
That the wind came out of the cloud by night,
Chilling and killing my Annabel Lee.

But our love it was stronger by far than the love
Of those who were older than we-
Of many far wiser than we-
And neither the angels in heaven above,
Nor the demons down under the sea,
Can ever dissever my soul from the soul
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee.

For the moon never beams without bringing me dreams
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And the stars never rise but I feel the bright eyes
Of the beautiful Annabel Lee;
And so, all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
Of my darling- my darling- my life and my bride,
In the sepulchre there by the sea,
In her tomb by the sounding sea.

Edgar Allan Poe
