Luck in Sarajevo

In Sarajevo
in the spring of 1992,
everything is possible:

you go stand in a bread line
and end up in an emergency room
with your leg amputated.

Afterwards, you still maintain
that you were very lucky.

by Izet Sarajlic

Great poem, CT. It makes all sorts of images in my head as I read it.
