CARAMEL
My burnt candy is hard. My life worse
forgetting that both come from the same shit
but I took, took to loving a woman, as life
scent of cinnamon, Carmen, oh, Carmela
she loved creme de menthe, but I compared
her to the steam from coffee and
she must have compared me to something
she took to the ache of love now she
is thrilled with leaving.
Love it seems preceded us and opened shop
early in the morning, recognized it
by its smell, its spices, its painful
words I took as the salt and pepper
of love, met her moods
in old accessory shops:
The Mirror Arcade, Bon Marche, the Gold Button...
A thousand habits, a thousand choices
clashing together,
I came across a stores stone walls, door locked,
neither my sweet words can open it nor my moody poems,
then I found it was a caramel shop,
now, my burnt candy is hard, my life worse,
but I am aficionado, separation is worse.

Oh, my sweet caramel, caramel is sweet but not its eaters.

KARAMELA

Yanık şekerim sert, hayatsa daha berbat,
ikisinin de aynı kağıttan ıktığını unuturdum
unutmasına da, ben tuttum birini sevdim,
hayatı nasıl sevdiysem, onu da yle sevdim:
Tarın Kokulu Kız, Carmen, Ay Carmela...
O nane likrne bayılırdı ama, ben onu
sıcacık bir kahvenin dumanına benzettim,
o da beni birine benzetmiş olmalı ki, tuttu
aşk derdine dşt, şimdiyse terketme sevdasında!
Aşk dnyaya bizden nce gelmiş de erkenden
amış gibi dkkanını, onun kokusuyla tanıdım
aktarları, acı szlerini aşkırn tuzu biberi saydım,
onun huylarıyla karşılaştım eski tuhafiyelerde:
Aynalı Pasaj, Bonmarşe ve Altın Dğme...
Biri birine uymayan binbir huy, binbir eşit,
bir dkkana rastladım duvar taş, kapı kilit,
ne tatlı szlerim aabildi ne iyi huylu şiirim,
karamela dkkanı olduğunu en sonunda ğrendim!
Şimdi yanık şekerim sert, hayat ondan da dert,
ben zaten tiryakiyim, ayrılık aşktan da berbat!

Ah karamela, şekerim, aşk tatlı da insanlar berbat!
