Hello There!

I have been writing poetry since I was 15 years old and have compiled two selections of my work one in English entitled "Derelict", the other in Turkish called "Tokluk Deryası". I have been rejected six times by different Turkish publishers and getting my English poetry published is kind of a dream when there are no agents representing poets and there are a lot of scams out there such as publishers asking for fees and online journals that have absolutely no respect for the writer, the work or the genre.
I have a blog for my poetry and my other works;
I also am into scientific/epistemic philosophy and theory development;
I also work on video art;
and music;

And here is a taste :)

the word the book the writer

he who uttered the word
he who the book uttered
he who have uttered the book
this goes back and forth
and through different actions and technology
we get closer and apart
all the words in all the books
writers to tellers to writers
to book burner wannabe’s
to effortless name creators
what gets into design
time and space
is a matter of who gets to
feed it as well as
what fashions it in congregation
