Born in Ankara in 1961
combative in nature
stumbles and falls
Once in a while falls in love
If you ask
his memories are a separate world
He cherishes them in a independent universe
His dreams are contrary
When bored creates a war
between his memories and dreams
and rides on cigarette smoke
he cruises between his memories and dreams
and very difficult to be seen
in the world
