"I am not what I am, my name is a «nom de guerre», a built identity of existence, an identity which is not  in affiliation with compulsory social or family relationship anymore.  Our self, as a condition of our own reality. I'm the surrogate mother of my own self, devourer of my nights in the gaping hole of an injured destiny. I am a man in the uncertainty of the day, looking sounds of heat like locked memories."
