	Paper cuts from books as thick as his lips
	As gapped and gashed as his teeth
	His curly hair, Medusa rendered quatrains, airs
	Uninvited village crier smile, apologetic
	Defiant, untrue in magnitude but
	Blue in spirit, ethos gardens in pungent parapente.

	I read the words, so aware of other words unsaid
	Sevag's piercing smoke rings dance in Mashdots' band
	Barouir repatriating anger, not centrally planned solace
	When ghosts sing in riddles, nightmares cued, reverberate.

	And for this sleepless trance, this cowering crunch
	A nation seeps without redress, chants in robes and incense
	Sevag seduced, a haunted myth, bathes in etymological caress
