We can't be seen together. Our paths are separate. You belong to the butcher, I am an alley cat. You eat from a nickeled plate. I eat from the lion's mouth. You dream of love. I dream of bones. But your path isn't easy either, pal, Not easy To wag a tail every godforsaken day.
Orhan Veli Translated by Murat Nemet-Nejat, 1989
