	By Bedros Afeyan

	  There was a woman once I knew
	Whose love could not smother but coo
	Poised and fragile, butterfly in flight
	Color fed, serene, as though untouched

	But soon a break, a turn to flush
	Like a giant gouache engulfed
	Bleeding sores, memories ill stored
	Disillusioned lanterns invaded by civil wars
	Promised quotients and debts unpardoned
	Propellants to sadden a shadow-grafted soul

	This hewn of binding hues heralds each morn
	Blessing thine escape, the grasp Divine
	A postponement for a vagrant troubadour
	Searching in breaths to shore, to shore
	Without implosion or demi-tour.

	Lake Arrowhead, CA
