[Poem]"Blind Poem" | Mehmet Fidan

Blind Poem | Güneş Bozkurt




Cats have nine lives
in their first suicide; they lose their left eyes
I bizarrely feel close
to cats with one blind eye. Most of them after that
do not attempt to commit suicide once again
but I feed a cat whose eyes are both blind.

And the ones who laugh at my cat
when it hits the leg of the table
I never allow them into my house again.
