Necip Fazıl Kısakürek

THE CORPSE'S ROOM

THE CORPSE'S ROOM

A room, blinds lowered, a candle on the floor
And on the floor a naked shirt vivified by its fear;
The shadows of nails on milk-white walls,
Now neither rustling nor sound of footfalls.
He lies flat in bed, all tall and long and dead,
Covered in a sheet pulled up to his head.
On the bed-clothes his toes leave their trace,

SIDEWALKS

SIDEWALKS

I'm in the street, in a street all lonely
Walking, walking and never looking back
At the point my path is mingled with the black
I seem to see a phantom wait for me

Ashen clouds overcast the darkling sky
Lightening bolts seek the chimneys of homes
In this midnight only two who sleepless roam
I here am one and there the sidewalks lie

Drop by drop a terror collects in me

THE DEAD

THE DEAD

The dead cry out from their cemeteries
Travelers! Sit here on our stones.
It is we who tipped them to the ground
We it was who thusly cast them down
Beware, don't ever jump off gravestones
The dead cry out from their cemeteries

Travelers, lay you down long upon the ground
Against our stones just rest your heads
Our stones are soft as feather pillows

HOTEL ROOMS

HOTEL ROOMS

It is pity burns in those narrow rooms
In the smoky lamps, in the smoky lamps,
A reflection lingers of faces known
In the misty glass, in the misty glass,
The scattered clothes are a strangled man
On the broken chairs, on the broken chairs,
And the shuffling slippers tap secret things
On the dingy floors, on the dingy floors,
In the naked walls throbs the pulse of pain
