Greece, Poetry

WARRANDER PARK ROAD II by Zoe Konstantinou

– I’m fucked 

– Then come talk to me

He rolled me a cig and I found out he was half Irish 

Time passed

we went inside

he gave me shots

then it was my turn

3 a.m., places close

he switched to French / asked me to come over

C’est ton choix 

After a while I found him there

he showed me inside effortlessly

all that time I struggled for us to meet 

seemed but a minor misunderstanding.


Zoe comes from Greece and studied International Relations in Edinburgh. Her favourite author is Roberto Bolaño and her writing has appeared in The Selkie, Litro Magazine and Toasted Cheese.
