| ProfessionalWhy did you make this work:
"I purchased a store on Dizengov
to strike roots
to purchase roots
to find me a perch in Roval
the people in Roval1
I ask myself
who are these people in Roval
what’s so special about these people in Roval
what make them tick these people in Roval
I don’t address the people in Roval
and when the people in Roval address me
I pull out the language,2
a most up-to-date Hebrew".

I've been asked to Illustrate an Israeli poem name "A Purchase in Deizengov" by Erez Bitton. it tells a story of a store owner at Dizengoff Street in Israel and how alienated he feels compare to the outside, almost a stranger coming from the outskirts of Israel into the very center of a bohemian driven society.
I wanted to do the opposed of the poem, to show the inside from the outside.Commissioner Name :
