Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Muhsin İlyas Subaşı

(1942- …)

Like a Drunk

If there’s no soul; all heads are an empty can

Hearts that grow without love; they’re hard as stones

If you see them sober; don’t be fooled

If they haven’t tasted love; alla re intoxicated.

(Translated by Mevlut Ceylan, 101Poems by 101Poets An Anthology of Turkish Poetry)
