	The pain of blades of grass
	Growing under the asphalt

	Gnawing at their instincts
	At stolen layered light

	Through crevices and cracks
	With steamy breath -- the rain

	Of uncrushed ambitions -- barred
	Complexion, unseasoned

	Vexing grey grime
	Spit and urine nourished

	Grinding twin empires
	Ottomania, Russophobia

	Our ancestors endured, escaped, resisted
	So you can burn and smoke their fingers

	Reaching out on lurching nights
	to an addict's rage, plea transfixer

	Bedros Afeyan
	Davies Symphony Hall,
	San Francisco, CA
