       Unselfishness is the law of the spirit,
       While selfishness is the law of the body…
             S. Yessudian


You had the endurance to keep on watching while preying mantises
devoured each other,
huge islands sank into the abyss,
the mountains were consumed by clouds…
You had the endurance to observe while the period
of optimism changed into the period of darkness, joyless clowns
on the stage, the work that receives honours
even though it is has no substance…, but you have always been
afraid to look into your own
soul because perhaps there is nothing in there…


Vukovar - Beograd, 1989-1995
