МY PEOPLE
TONIGHT I DRINK
A LETTER TO VENYA

_______________________________________________________________________

МY PEOPLE

Translated to English: Rumena Bužarovska
  
My people are scattered in cities.
    My people wake up in Saigon and Managua.
    They drink in the Zagreb taverns and on the low walls of Split.
    They get high on speed in the Sarajevo nights.
    They drive kids to school on the streets of Vienna.
    They hallucinate under the Berlin sky.
    They hurry to their jobs in Paris.
    They play banjo in the pubs of Edinburgh.
    They do yoga in Sombor.
    They piss in the corridors of Belgrade buildings.
    They love each other on the Bosphorus.
    They tell dirty jokes in the gardens of Mostar.
    They do dishes in the restaurants of Copenhagen.
    They look for sunny spots in Oslo.
    Homeless orphans, Dickensian boys and girls.
    My folk, I say.
