"Met a poet from the opposite side of the world, only to find that we are same in our Otherness. For me it felt natural to take his poetry to the mountain under which I grew up, to write his words on leaves that not too long ago witnessed bomb-shelling of my town deprived of water, food or electricity, but never of poetry." — Bojan Stojčić, Sarajevo, 2023
