THE ROOSTER AND THE STAIRS

THE ROOSTER AND THE STAIRS

Upstairs is upstairs and downstairs is downstairs a bit
The rooster and stairs are right in the middle
Dazzling rooster! He gathers colors on the stairs
A kid is more a kid on the red of a whistle

A ten-fathom thread calls out my mother
I stick my head right into the bucket
As much fish as I think fish

Edip Cansever
