Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Mevlut Ceylan

(1958-….)

In An Empty Room

They talked we were silent

they decreed the shaving of half the face

the dead were carried

from the hills to the hills

Aad plains

 

I entered life with fearful eyes

towards morning

like a smuggled letter

like the secret Book

like those crushed and bound

 

My face in my hands

(Translated by Ruth Christie, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
