It is a short sci-fi story by Ouzhan Kavakç覺.

"B覺rakt覺m. Bir yang覺n yeridir, ard覺mda b覺rakt覺m. Peimden
koan tek boynuzlular olsun, at adamlar olsun, dönmem.
Geçmem bir daha u dipsiz çukurun yan覺ndan. “Dön,” derler
bilmeden. “Bre siz bilir misiniz u Ar覺’n覺n alt覺nda ne yatar?
Dadan uçup çay覺r, çimene düen nedir bilir misiniz?” Kaçar
imdi atlar ve boynuzlular. Kaçarlar, dada uyuyan hiddetten.
Etkisinden, ak覺ndan ve tenhas覺ndan kaçarlar, ard覺na
bakmaks覺z覺n. Yang覺nd覺r, b覺rakt覺m."

My translation: "I left. This place is on fire and I left it behind. Let unicorns and centaurs run after me, I will not return. I will not pass near this endless pit. "Come back" they say "Hey, do you know what lies beneath this Ari? What flew from the mountains and fell into the grass?" And now horses and cattle run away. They run away from the fury that sleeps in the mountains. From its influence, love and solitude they run without looking back. This place is on fire, so I left."

I must be wrong, because it hardly makes sense.


I found out that Ar覺 here probably means famous Ar覺 Da覺 -- the Ararat. Didn´t help much, though.
