Another poem inspired by the Sozopol Fiction Seminar, this time by Ivan Dimitrov, one of the Bulgarian fellows. Ivan is a multi-talented young Bulgarian author, who has published a novel, Животът като липсваща лъжица (Life as a Missing Spoon, Altera 2010), and a book of short stories, Местни чужденци (Local Foreigners, Ars 2010).
