Zamanda geriye doğru yolculuk yapmanın en kısa yolu tarih okumaktır

 

 

Ahmet Kot

(1953-….)

 

Here Comes

The sea screaming towards me

with heavy feet

here come the ebb and the flow

to shower me with fear

 

Look and you shall find death is part of the stone

Look and you shall find death is part of us

 

My friend you and your word

Are made of the same stuff

You rot into each other

There is no way out

Stil, you should come to the mountain

And breathe the fresh air
