Poem – Metaxy

Poem published in the Greek-Australian Cultural League’s 2016 Periodical Antipodes.

Metaxy” is a manifesto showing that it is permissible to be in two different cultures (as an In-Betweener, a Metaxy), even if you feel cultural displacement growing up in Australia and with the relationships that you have with others.

The poem explores the issues of the quest for self and our identity.

I decided the poem would show my own personal growth, on how I define myself as Australian-Greek, and to see the bigger picture that there is a generation in Australia like me, that I want to represent as a poet.
