The Heart of Dogs

Strong, touching, angry; the poem has a voice that resembles Thomas Bernard, Bela Tarr. ‘Wind’ ‘horses’ and ‘childhoold’ are images used by poet frequently. In his own words, the name of the book comes from: “I was thinking of the innocent gazes of childhood and dogs at that time, how they don’t do anything, while running around everything. Köpeklerin Kalbi (The Heart of the Dogs) satisfied me with its sound and its bold expression mostly. So there are things in the world that everyone needs to live; also there are idioms like “to love like a dog” or “to make like a dog”. Besides, there is being in need. When we classify humans and animals as living beings, it turns our lives are in fact natural enough to be the subject of documentary. When get rid of the makeup, that state of being in need becomes obvious.”
