I have a new poem up in Uncanny Magazine. “Νόστιμον Ήμαρ” is a poem about leaving and missing home and the taste of it.
Νόστιμον Ήμαρ means “the day of return” in Greek and it’s an expression one can find in Odyssey. The word νόστιμος (tasty) has the same root as νoσταλγία (nostalgia) which is νόστος and means coming back to your home country. It’s an interesting thing if you think about it, how tastes and food can mean home to people.
I hope you enjoy it!
