Our Trade - Η Συναλλαγή Μας

I suppose I could lie.
It’s easily done and even that
can be forgiven

If the lie is good enough
and smooth enough

And leavened with a touch of the truth.

What’s fiction but a lie well told?

I could lie but the truth is

Our trade begins in magic.

That’s all.

That’s the whole of it.

That’s all we know.

What’s the use of
saying silence helps?

Noise may help too.
The call of the cuckoo

I hear thee and rejoice

Or the stuttering orisons of . . . but you know that one.

No use framing a law that contradicts itself.

Even in our trade.
But I offer you a contradiction instead:
All words disrupt silence

But the only ones that echo

Are born in the silence they destroy.

Υποθέτω θα μπορούσα να πω ψέμματα.
Εύκολο είναι, και ακόμα κι' έτσι συγχωρείται

αν το ψέμμα είναι αρκετά καλό και ήπιο

και έχει λίγη μαγιά απ' την αλήθεια.

Τι άλλο είναι φαντασία από ένα ψέμμα καλά ειπωμένο;

Θα μπορούσα να πώ ψέμματα, αλλά η αλήθεια είναι πως

Η συναλλαγή μας αρχίζει με τρόπο μαγικό.

Αυτό είν' όλο.

Αυτό είναι συνολικά.

Αυτό είν' όλο που γνωρίζουμε.

Τι ωφελεί να λες Σιωπή;

Ο Θόρυβος ίσως να βοηθά επίσης.
Ο ήχος τού κούκου

Σε ακούω κι' αναγαλλιάζω
ή ψελλίζοντας δεήσεις γιά...,
αλλά το ξέρεις αυτό.
Δεν ωφελεί να διατυπώνεις ένα νόμο,
που αυτοδιαψεύδεται.

Ακόμα και στην συναλλαγή μας.

Μα αντ' αυτού σας προσφέρω την αντίφαση:

Όλες οι λέξεις διαλύουν την σιωπή

αλλά οι μόνες που ηχούνε
γεννιούνται μέσα στην σιωπή που καταστρέφουν.

Hey! I understand this is kind of off-topic but I
needed to ask. Does operating a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
I am completely new to operating a blog but I do write in my
diary on a daily basis. I'd like to start a blog so I will be able to share my personal experience and views online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

Hi there this is kinda of off topic but I was
wondering if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey administrator, I just wanted to give you a brief heads up that your current URL:
http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=671945252477737194&postID=2015190542131041969 is being flagged as a potentially harmful site in my internet browser
internet explorer. I'd highly suggest having someone look into it. You can lose a lot of site visitors due to this kind of issue. Very best of Luck.

I am starting a new online website directory and was
wanting to know if I can submit your blog? I'm hoping to increase my directory gradually by hand so that it retains quality. I'll
make sure and put your website in the proper category and I'll also use, "Blogger: poetreated" as your anchor text. Be sure to let me know if this is okay with you by emailing me at: eliasmcmurray@gmail.com. Appreciate it

I'm not sure exactly why but this blog is loading very slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I'll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

Appreciating the commitment you put into your blog and detailed information you provide.
It's great to come across a blog every once in a while that isn't the same out of date rehashed information.
Fantastic read! I've bookmarked your site and I'm including
your RSS feeds to my Google account.

Gday. I noticed your blog title, "Blogger: poetreated" does
not really reflect the content of your site.

When composing your blog title, do you think it's best to write it for Search engine marketing or for your visitors? This is one thing I've been struggling with because I want great rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.

The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iPad and tested to see if it can survive
a 40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it with someone!

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up
losing a few months of hard work due to no backup.

Do you have any solutions to stop hackers?
