Alexandros Vanaryotis: Materialism

 

Alexandros Vanaryotis


Materialism


OTH OF THEM were crying for a long time, each in the other’s arms. The bank had just repossessed their house. The house they had dreamed about for years, the one they had built with love and care, the house they had raised their children in. They were crying and holding each other tightly. So tightly, as they had never held one other in the years before, the years they were together, when they dreamed and raised their children.
