Murat Nemet-Nejat's Page Poetry Pages in English

Whereas a glass of water was enough to wet your hair,
A slice of bread, two olives to fill our stomachs
If I kissed you once, the second felt itself neglected,
If I kissed you twice, the third bent its neck in sadness...

           Murat Nemet-Nejat
           The Exquisite Corpse, 1993
