Here’s a poem by Bosnian poet Izet Sarajlić and is entitled “My Sojourn in Istanbul”. It comes from the anthology, "Scar On The Stones, Contemporary Poetry From Bosnia", edited by Chris Agee. More poems from this anthology to hopefully follow in the near future.

My Sojourn in Istanbul

There are several versions
of my sojourn in Istanbul

According to one,
It was a sojourn of a serious political nature.

According to another one,
it had to do with one of my sentimental novels.

In the third version,
even the selling of drugs is mentioned.

The fact that I’ve never been to Istanbul
did not interest anyone, of course.
