Quoting Abla

 One rule that is quite clear is that of the negative marker –mA-. It is unstressable (except in most combinations with the aorist suffix) and as a rule it causes the syllable before it to receive stress. Listen to

and you will hear it in practice.

 

I personally think that the reader reads some weird, some (or very) unstressable

If you say so, caliptrix. I don´t think anything, I am yabancı. I just paid attention to the stress thing while I listened to Nazım Hikmet reading his own poem here.

I heard many poem readers read weird indeed. The reader may be the poet as well. I remember that Necip Fazıl heard that someone read his poem and he said: "you have just devastated my poem". But I heard some of poems read by his own voice, I thought the same think: "he devastated the poem"

As a result; poem reading is a different thing. Everyone has his own feelings on the stress of the poem reading. Don´t get me wrong, but I personally think not everyone can read poem well, just like singing; not everyone can sing well.
