Yalnızlık Loneliness

Şemsiye yapımcıları
ıslanmaktan
tek kişiyi koruyacak genişlikte
kesince kumaşları
yağmur değil
yalnızlıktır yağan

Daha da hüzünlendirir her gece
kentin sokaklarını
bekçinin nefesiyle
düdüğün içinde dönen
nohut taneciğinin
yalnızlığı

Ne çok sevinirim bilseniz
bir yılan
mezarıma girerde
göğüs kafesimin kemikleri içinde
kış uykusuna
yatarsa

Since the umbrella makers
cut the cloth
wide enough to protect only one person
from getting wet
what falls is not rain
it is loneliness

Every night, the streets of the city
are more mournful
with the loneliness
of the chickpea
that moves in the whistle pipe
upon the breath of the night watchman

If only you knew how happy it would make me
when a snake
comes to my grave
and hibernates
in the bones
of my rib cage
