After the war he studied literature and has gone on to create his own literary works.
His second book Hit depot (2003) was the absolutely literary bestseller in Bosnia despite that was a poetry book.
In this book he made a sketches of a several main topic of his later works such as postwar life on the edge of society. His poems are about local (and global) feeling of capitalistic way of life mixed with desperate postwar life in ruins, remains of dead society in Sarajevo and Bosnia.
