Kjell Espmark: 'Det hände att jag profeterade'

From time to time I might prophesise

but only about the past.

I warned Caesar one morning in March.

And I predicted that the Library of Alexandria

would go up in flames

with Sapho scattered amongst the flakes.

I also forecast my birth

one April day in the Kavafis family

and was present to console my mother.
