My Gold-Toothed One

by Orhan Veli

Come, my darling, come with me:
Let me buy you silk stockings,
Take you on taxi rides,
Escort you to concerts.
Come,
Come my gold-toothed one,
My eye-shadowed one, my wavy-haired one, my tease;
My cork-heeled one, my whore, come.

Translated from the Turkish by Deniz Perin
