Ilias Tsagas – Streamlining

rush hour drop out, I 

lay still at your bank, seeking

comfort and solace 


beneath a worn hatch 

water flows in dark culverts 

dreaming of daylight 


phone signal weakens 

culvert stream roars, it dreams of 

rushing to the top 

Ilias Tsagas is a Greek poet writing in English and in Greek. His poems have appeared in Sand Journal, The Shanghai Literary Review, streetcake magazine, Tint Journal and elsewhere. He was also a runner-up at the Briefly Write Poetry Prize 2021.
