SOTIRIOS PASTAKAS
‘An apple-core’

An apple-core. Someone was sitting here biting an apple. Then he disappeared. The same day that History recorded three deaths in the center of Athens. Someone else at another spot left his cigarette butt before he disappeared too. History only records: apple-cores, cadavers, ashes.

SOTIRIOS PASTAKAS
'I set the table'

I set the table for one. For myself. Turned the teevee on. Sat down. In order to save capitalism sacrifices are required from all of us. The phone rang. You asked if you could come. You could. I turned off the teevee. Got up. Capitalism is hemorrhaging and is dying. I said. I changed the tablecloth. I set the table for two.
