Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Asaf Halet Çelebi

(1907-1958)

Who Have The Eyes Seen

I sat in rooms

and became one with them

 

I went out to the streets

and the streets flowed in my veins

 

I chenged into visible objects

and the objects into an eye that keeps

watching me

 

yet I am not visible
