Ten Poems

Truly, where are we headed?

How does one arrive on Earth? Maybe from the east Maybe from the west Maybe from Anatolia Truly, how does one arrive on Earth? Perhaps through you Perhaps through me Perhaps through loneliness

How does one arrive on Earth now? Maybe on a boat from Istanbul

Or a plane from London Or a spaceship from Mars

Truly, from where have you come down to Earth?

How did you so get used to the Earth, truly, the way you participate in the world, A little love, a few lies A little devilment, plunder, Needless hate, jealousy, et cetera Making a mockery of humanity Is that how you came to Earth? Always a little lacking of yourself Truly, how could we love you so? 137
