Θυμάστε που στο σχολείο, στη λογοτεχνία, κάναμε αντιπαραβολές έργων;
Όχι, ε; Ε, ήρθα να σας το θυμίσω εγώ.
Στο Πανεπιστήμιο το λένε συγκριτική λογοτεχνία.

Κατά τη γνώμη μου υπάρχουν μόνο δύο τραγουδοποιοί-ποιητές εν ζωή.
Ο Leonard και ο Θανάσης. Πολλοί μπορεί να αμφισβητήσετε το δεύτερο αλλα απλά θα σας γυρίσω την πλάτη.

Το πρώτο είναι για μία γυναίκα
Το δεύτερο για μία πεταλούδα

Leonard Cohen - Suzanne
Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she's half crazy
But that's why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you've always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you've touched her perfect body with your mind.
And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said "All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them"
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you'll trust him
For he's touched your perfect body with his mind.
Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she's touched your perfect body with her mind.

Θανάσης Παπακωνσταντίνου-Sara

Κι όμως εσύ Sara
Δε φοβάσαι τα φρούτα του πάθους
Κυλά το δηλητήριο στο σώμα σου,Sara
Κι όπου να 'ναι σου χαρίζει τα μαύρα φτερά.
Ντύνεσαι νύχτα ανάλαφρη,Sara
Δεν ξέρω σε ποιους τόπους γυρνάς
Με τέσσερα φεγγάρια στην πλάτη σου,Sara
Τέσσερα γαλήνια ξέφωτα.
Το σκουλήκι της γνώσης ζήλεψε,Sara
Γόνιμη ομορφιά, ζιζάνιο
Φωλιάζει στη χλόη του στέρνου μου, Sara
Και περιμένει τα δώρα απ' το κυάνιο.
Μπορεί στα φεγγάρια των Σιου,Sara
Μπορεί και στον Σμόλικα,
Κάνει τις πέτρες να σκιρτάνε,Sara
Σπάζοντας τον άγνωστο κώδικα.
