1. Mother Nayman


In August, the mad sun is burning furiously

in the firmament


a camel is running like flying on the parched plain

followed by a bird and a legend


a white cloud of the empire and Mankurt

are hanging from the scales


on both sides of the street

are standing you and the shadows


the plain is endless

and the hills, erected like trees, keep changing their postures

with time



2. Mankurt


Your head is like a huge cage

with your mother in it

like a bird struggling in the darkness


in the back shadow of your ashes

the chess is waiting

for the fingerless performance


voyeurs in God'sforbidden area

discard your body

and what they have buried is your soul


thieves are rushing around at night

keeping in memory

the moment when the clock is struck

*Mother Nayman and Mankurt are characters in
The Day Lasts More than a Hundred Yearsby Chinghiz Aitmatov.
