Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

The Luggage

Kafka was spitting red in his letters

He thought the morning would never arrive

He was stranded

In an unknown station with his luggage

 

Kafka didn’t have any morning

Besides, nobody has greeted a night

Longer than the twentieth century.
