garip iste

October 23, 2009

imdi buraya yazdiklarimi bir cogunuzun anlayamayacak olmasi ne garip..
insanlara ayni anda bu kadar yakin olup bir o kadar da uzak olmak ne garip.
en basitinden sevginin bile aralara takilmasi ne garip.
ve en kotusu de, buna uygun bir cozumun olmamasi ne garip,

ve kucuk sorunlarin altinda buyuk adammiscasina ezilmek.

aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim

October 11, 2009

Escalator took me down very slowly. First they saw my shoes, then my trousers, then my t-shirt, then my glasses. Then they put aside the board which was holding my name. First I saw their shoes, then their faces. There was no need for a board holding my name. Apparently, I was already the inveterate foreigner. They immediately knew who I was, even though I was trying to pretend like it was the sixth time I was using the very same escalator. I immediately knew who they were. For no reason they were quite excited to see me, as if I was their grandson.

OW: old woman
OM: old man
M-t: Me, thinking
M-s: Me, speaking

OW: Welcome! I am OW and this is my husband OM.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
M-t: what?
M-s: Thank you so much for volunteering to pick me up from the airport. It’s very nice of you.
OW: No problem at all. We’re glad you’re here.
OW: OM it is late, but let’s give him a quick tour.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
M-s: You already did so much for me. I really don’t want to take any more time of yours.
M-t: Please drop me where I am staying. I can barely speak.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
OW: No, that’s okay. Look this is the street.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
M-s: Yes, I read about it before coming here. It looks like a fun place.
OW: Well, we don’t understand these people. I think they are doing wrong things.
M-t: What the fuck?
M-t: Well, the street looked longer in the pictures. Is this the one I’ll build my life around?
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
M-t: Oh OM! I really cannot understand what you are saying. Sorry.
OW: Do you go to church?
M-s: I beg your pardon.
OW: Do you go to church?
M-s: Well, we don’t have churches where I come from. I mean we have, but a few. In fact, I am not a religious person.
M-t: Glad I didn’t say I am an atheist. Nobody wants to make a nice cute old couple sad.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
M-s: But I’d love to join you someday. It can be a nice cultural experience.
M-t: Fuck! You couldn’t have said something more cliché than this. Well done!
OW: Here is our card. Call or drop us a line anytime. By the way, this is the place you will stay.
M-s: Thank you so much for everything.
OM: aei goipee gpein arkansoway tenim
OW: It was so nice to meet with you. See you soon.
M-s: Indeed.

I smell like lemonmint and a little bit of thyme today

October 8, 2009

I am really glad that we all forget. A deceased family member or a loved one.

I can still remember their faces. I will immediately recognize them in a crowded street.
If one day they call me on the phone, I’ll immediately know who they are.
I still remember how it feels like to hold their hands..soft or tight or smooth; always warm or always cold.
Not as much but, I still remember how their necks tasted like.

And thank god, I don’t remember how nice they smell.
