Why?

Shortly away from the love of sex

Law regulates the relations between human
beings

The law goes on in Oblivion…Without knowing, to be a part of our motives

The motives of its desire us or them Differs from another person


Who? And why?!

I ask these questions to myself When I walk in this city markets…
