Ankara

12 Jan 2010

Cybele Cybele
centre of the Anatolian pantheon
ritually castrated a hidden noise
is woven into this Turkish rain
drumming dancing and drinking
upon the long sleeves of a priest
the Turks did give the Dutch
their tulips

veni vidi vici

the lunar bull
is damp with sweat and I am amid the testicles
of another wet winter
a stranger is at my doorsteps
a stranger spoons the silt
of Turkish coffee
into my cup
I have eaten
Ayran sour yogurt
with Kansik Pide &
Ali Nazik Kebap
