	By Diana Der Hovanessian

	I love your eyes
	over my love,
	these words I once typed.
	Your eyelashes opening
	the sun in the east
	pushing horizons
	like twin Alexanders.
	I love that night.
	(Should I say "loved"?)
	Now in your time
	I am as still as Alexander,
	but you reading open
	all boundaries like
	the conqueror moving east.
