On the first day blood was created
on the second day death
on the third love was mentioned
and then there were no days left for us.
”Brothers & Sisters” written and recited by the author Shpëtim Selmani.
The poem expresses a spectacular exercise in concise pessimism. Confronted with the very beginning of life, the work questions the origin of the chain of creation. Projecting itself as a short story of what started and went terribly wrong in the Balkans region during the war periods.
