Poetry Month: Nazim Hikmet

Today’s poem comes from the great Turkish poet, Nazim Hikmet. Cassandra has told me that he resembles my grandfather. I never noticed, but yeah, he does a little.

I’ve decided to read this poem as part of Robert Pinsky’s favorite poem project. It's damn good, maybe not my favorite, but who can pick a single favorite poem? (Okay, my father can. This one.)
