Unmade Bed. Metaxochori (Μεταξοχώρι, Κρήτη) Crete

Another from Crete. A new village for me, Μεταξοχώρι (Metaxochori) way out at the end of nowhere. I can't imagine that they see tourists at all. An interesting place in that most of the houses were unoccupied due to damage...incredible damage to the walls and foundations to the point where they appeared to be slipping down the mountain. My immediate reaction was that at some stage there had been an earthquake...even if a small one but enough to dislodge the houses. At a later date I spoke to the owner of a local book shop that I know and it would appear that the village is built on a fault and is gradually slipping down the hill. Sad but I guess nature always has it's way in the end. Fancy a wander around the area? Yeah of course you do! Here's an aerial view.

I will return here one day
and dig up my bones from the clay
I buried nails and strings and hair
and that old tooth I believe was a bear's

I held my hand in the fire
it burned me down to the wires

blood suckers hide beneath my bed
And black fumes of skin so gently bled
I slept with a cat on my breast
slowing my heart stealing my breath
