Photograph by Cemal Süreya

Three persons at the bus stop
Man woman and child

His hands in his pockets
She holds the child’s hand

He is sad
As sad as sad songs

She is beautiful
As beautiful as beautiful memories

The child
As sad as beautiful memories
As beautiful as sad songs

translated by Omer Kursat
