“Forget what you know.Rock Real Estate. Cherry Park. It’s 07:38. What am I looking for? Urban’s Ivy.Expectant.The eyes of the woman at the Talimhanel. End of Portakal Yokuşu. Desert of loners. Eminönü New Mosque. Blind spot. Home road. What am I looking for? Harbiye tunnel exit. Cold cops. Sculptural shadows falling to the ground. The guards I met at Sadık Şendil on the way back from day to morning. Green tents distributed to the Yesil. Cops who told me to walk on the right side of the road. A traffic camera I saw eye to eye in Barbaros. Eşref Efendii to Dolapdere. Dirty storefronts. The feet goes backwards. Feet from behind. From Fındıklı To Pürtelaş. He always has hands that try to tell. The breathtaking stairs of Fındıklı. Have you seen it?”
