"I'm back, and have little time, so tell me."


I Worshiped Too Many Gods
by Gür Genç

1.

I worshiped too many gods, but
After the long winters in the North I know now
Sun, you are the most real!

    Ganged up with the Sea, in this
Arid paradise, what have you done
To the lost pieces of porcelain childhoods?

I'm back, and have little time, so tell me.

2.

The land, which gives seven, and takes nine
I'm back – against the proverbs
It's arthritis accumulating in my joints

I'm asking you about those who hide in oblivion
And what hides buried in you
And others dumped in the bottom of the well

Crossing over the limits of conditions
Overturning the towers of light onto thorny Mesaoria plains
And with the feeling of guilt

I'm back, and have little time, so tell me.
