Mutiny - Poem by Nassy Fesharaki


In white
All white
Two-piece white
Except for the cylindrical cap, (Long and Grey)
Nothing but white

Hands on chest
To the players and sheikh
A bow of respect
As if Sumo wrestler throwing salt
Skirt, white

He stood
Like a dove
All in white
Spreading wing
Before the flight

His hands up
Over the shoulders
His head to the left
Eyes open
He turned and turned and turned

Daf played
Ney played
Also the Tar
And he turned
And turned and turned

Against the law
The health law
Law of Medics
He is a Dervish

He is a mutineer
Turning and turning
Dancing and dancing as is in Konya
His brain, well under control
