Epigrams


By Meleager
Translated from the Greek by Fortunato Salazar

5.152

Emma
legal compliance

loyal subordinates in the absolute

…without being cited
how about trying to introduce the two of you

huh

Emma
two people carried all over the following year

you put yourself in the “this side”
Chubs

in melee
funny individualistic lizard
light blue body and perfectly round

…in the parrot there is a really talented lizard—Iadmon

wait no…Ouma…wait no

insolent reconnaissance
…okay? your nap face into a brief

misty-eyed eyelids

maybe face

linear in an instant face

EMPRESS to insert the sunshine of the sun where you’ll keep an eye out

jolted saying such it
arrives at its lobe
lobe? reunited with her

to be bathing. Not troubled to bait

mohair professional
cute busy white flame
bound to the only tree
