The Old Creditor........... - Poem by Tsira Gogeshvili

THE OLD CREDITOR (Zveli mevale)

If I’m turned out
Of this space
By your “afterwards”,
“Tomorrow”, and “later”,
I’ll shut my eyes,
And wait at your door,
Like a lender,
Like an old creditor…
I’ll open my eyes,
And look deep
Into your face,
I’ll reveal
The veiled secret,
And say my say…

    Tsira: I like this one a great deal. First, I like the reversal of someone being turned out of a place by someone else's delays. It is the creditor who says 'today' and the debtor who says 'tomorrow.' But if the creditor is turned out, well then whose property are we talking about? Second, I like the determination of the narrator who will say her say. There is ambiguity throughout the poem, but the determination in the end seems to cut through that, and leaves the reader feeling that this ambiguity will be addressed. Nicely done. Thank you.
