At Afyon Train Station

 Next Poem          

Remember that little girl at Afyon train station,
Who took off her shoes when she got on the train;
Think of the Varto earthquake, a box of milk powder,
And a bra sent as charity by the West.


The man whitewashed the walls of his house with the milk powder,
His wife kept the bra that was unknown to her,
She planned to use it as earmuffs in winter;
My God, was it really in your childhood days?...


Lots of people sitting on thresholds
I wish I would have loved you just for this.
