Many people often ask, “When did you start writing poetry?” To tell you the truth, I don’t remember the beginning. The moment I realized the fact of my existence, I definitely wrote something and it was even, as my parents assure me, in rhyme. Poetry for me is my DNA. I’m not a graphomaniac at all, I write only at the moments of inspiration. I graduated from the Poetry Department of the Literature Institute, but it rather helped me to understand how you SHOULDN’T write poetry. Poetry is beyond us, it’s beyond all forms and frames. In 2005, I published a book of poetry “CHB” (Black and White), which included the poems of the previous 15 years.
