Face Cloth


Salacak is a suburb on the eastern side of Istanbul. Kiz Kulesi literally means 'the Maiden's Tower', but is widely known in English as 'Leander's Tower' (after the legend of Hero and Leander). It is one of the most famous landmarks in Istanbul.

Translated by Dilek Unsal and The Poetry Translation Workshop.
