Kome Ptice Lete
While a family in Switzerland prepares for a visit to their former homeland Bosnia, their relatives on the other side wait patiently for their arrival. A poem that gently subverts what it means to be a dispersed family in times of migration and extended exile, confronting those who have gone with what was left behind.
