Treasure Island

Metin Sahin

(28.03.1943 / balı kesir turkey)


my young beloved's bag is very big
as a fashı on nowadays in young girls
hanging on the shoulder
usually black
like the soldier boots she puts on
that she used to boot me
sometimes in anger
what are there inside the black big bag
you can never guess
she carries everything in it
as the mall she works in
sometimes she puts the mall key in
because she is very secure
and tough
the bag is as if all her life
first comes the cell-phone
though she cannot find it easily
then her loved ones
sometimes she hides them in it
whom she wants to hide even from me
tjen tweezers
a lot of maje ups
sometimes even shoers and slippers
may be abottle of rose water
or a bottle of drinking water
toothpastes..pads..tooth brushes
even cleaning papers, napkins, toı let papers,
lipsticks, boxes of creams, balms, clippers
my young is lş ike the mall she works in
what eles are there in the black bag
you can never guess
varı ous and any kinds of several things
or can imagine
even she wants to park her car in it
but there is no room for the car yet
because she carries me in her black big bag too
and locks me there
in case ı can escape and leave her lonely
never the less
ı know
she loves me most
above everything
in her bag
she bears me and carries me everywhere

The firste stock-father of gentleness,
What man desireth gentle for to be,
Must follow his trace, and all his wittes dress,
Virtue to love, and vices for to flee;
