There’s a place for those
with a tenner on their IETT card,
with a day to escape,
where cats outnumber policemen,
where dead end streets overlook the sea,
like diving boards that giants spring from.
Here time has stopped.
But when you jump on the vapür heading back,
you realise it’s just all gone too fast.
There’s a place for those like me,
and I feel very lucky,
and that’s Kınalıada.
