Four Poems by Ozan Baygın (Eşref Ozan Baygın)




Nothing is actually nothing and only craziness

Been broken too many times, cannot be fixed.

Its not as sacred as an olive branch

In your eyes, at most it can be a piece from a fig tree


Translated by Sila Ellie Kutu





I forgot.

Heartbroken in the night.

Kâf. Cim. Nûn


The bracelet is broken.

The ring is lost.

Solomon is sleeping.



My token arrived.

I exploded.

The birds got scared.

The walls collapsed.





Yellow and white

And blood thinner. –Nice

Now I’m sweating.

My lips are chapped

inside the black hole.
