light gazing, ışığa bakmak

the bosphorus review of books

strait from the bosphorus, beloved, an international book mag, based in Istanbul.


Balat
Eleonora Masi


My body is a profane temple.

Happiness stays for a moment,

maybe 48 hours

in exchange for 40 days of pain.

Pain.

Pain inflicted,

pain suffered.

Red rags,

lives in pieces

collapsed like those buildings

in the most beautiful neighborhood

of the insolent metropolis.
