Zeycan Alkış

Waves drop three fishes down to the sky while carrying them
First is the time. Has no head, nor tail…
Other is the earth. Has both roots and command…
Last is water. Boat of the time, sail of the earth…

We are encompassed by smoke of spirals
That squeezes, tugs, hurls.
Puts on a way that does not exist. Rides the cloud, becomes a flood.
Mounts a hedgehog onto a zeppelin, a boat to a cloud.
Plucks threes out of the earth, blows wind from the sky.

Hopes scatter here and there. Flying brides and orchestra…
Cats warm the deck. Gliding swing and a cart without a horse…
Tangled with green, whirring. Anchor loosened, hard to port!!!
