Zakopavanje sestre

dječak i bazen

 

Školsku iz klupe, Aidu, prvi sam put nakon rata sreo 2001. godine
Živjela je u Nizozemskoj udata za Nijemca
Imaju već velike kćerke
Javili krajem godine da su joj identificirali
Brata u masovnoj

I ona pokopala nekoliko kostiju

Drugi puta sam je sreo 2005.
Opet joj našli brata

Pa su je zvali 2008. – u novonađenoj masovnoj
Još joj brata iskopali

Ove 2015. bila je mirna i puno starija
Našli ga opet, šapće i osvrće se

Dokle ću ovo, svakih četiri pet ljeta?
Šta ću, moj školski, ako mi dogodine nađu
Još brata?

A meni pun mezar

Burying of a Sister

I met Aida my friend from school for the first time after the war in year 2001
She was living in the Netherlands and was married to a German
Their daughters were all grown up
Towards the end of that year they informed her they identified
Her brother's remains in a mass

So she buried a couple of bones

I met her for the second time in 2005
Again they found her brother

Then they called in 2008 – in a newly discovered mass grave
They dug her brother up some more

This year in 2015 she was calm and much older
They found him again she whispered and glanced around

How long will this go on, every four or five years?
What am I going to do my friend from school if next year they find
More of my brother?

Now that my mezar is fulI
