April is National Poetry Month featuring Greek-American Poet Alexandra Kostoulas

Home. Not Home by Alexandra Kostoulas

I cried as the red moon rose.

We listened to mirologoi that

randomly came on my ipad.

We drank mavrodaphne and ate chocolate.

We spoke of the dead

and of our regrets and our hopes.

In my dad’s village—

where I belong

and where I don’t.
