Kılıç Sword

Ey serseriligin denizleri!
Ey ahtapotlari atilmişlar kiyiya mutsuzlugun!
Bir kraliçedir oglum kanatlarini açmiş.
Örtünür canfes.
Unutur gitgide yakilmiş babasi büyücü.
Selanik'te geçirir kişi.

Gelmiş bir kadinla konuşur Misrâyim'den. Yorgunlugu kusursuz bir at mor.
Uyuyakalmiş kayaliklarda.
Yükselir niçin bilinmez deniz.
Ey batik gemiler! Ey sürgün karaltilari!
Aglayan bir melez ben.

Anlatilmaz bir kiliçtir kuşanmiş taşirim belimde karaduygululuk.


The seas of vagabondage.
The octopus beached on the shore of unhappiness.
My son is a queen.He has spread his wings.
Wrapt himself in taffeta.
He forgets his father was burnt as a sorcerer.
He winters in Salonica.

He talks to a woman. Of Misrayim. A purple horse,
his tiredness without fault.
Falls asleep among the rocks.
Why the sea rises, no one knows.
O sunken ships, O black shimmers of exile!
I am a weeping half-breed.

Pessimism is an untellable sword I carry round my
waist.

trans. MURAT NEMET-NEJAT
