In a city in TURKEY
on the second day of Corban Feast
november 14..2011
a little girl about six or seven
is shitting and pissing on the corner of the road
her father and mother watching
as nobody has seen her
but me
what a strange thing
or a natural thing
on the road a girl pissing
yesterday many animal corbans were slaughtered
some cut his hands and feet
on these roads
with blood sputtered over everywhere
instentines in the trash bins thrown
and the city was desolated.. the cats were silenced
and hid in a place not found
my mother used to say
you cannot see even a cat on the roads
when meat is abundant
and the animals slaughtered
but this little girl
is pissing and shitting on them
under the protectıon of her father and mother
shit my little girl shit
in fact you are shitting on the world
may be she is right
this place is a place to be shitted
in a city in turkey
on november 14..2011
a little girl was shitting on the corner of the road
under the guidance of her father and mother
may be they thought nobody has noticed her
but me..
may be someone else too
It was the second day of Corban Feast
shit my little girl shit
may be this place
this world
is a place to be shitted

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
