	Bark one
		Bark two
			 Bark three

	Darting dots in silent sentences of the night
	Like darker mulberries
	On the mulberry tree of Nalbandyan 7, 2:40 am.
	All this air can do
	Is stare in silence...
	Its eyes touch so softly
	That my mind obeys
	And lays itself down
	On a constant stream of dreams...
	Bark one
		Bark two
			Bark three
	You know?
	There are
	Buried deep
	Twisted, gnarled, soggy
	Roots of angels
	Who have chosen to become trees
	And make Oxygen
	Yet not prudence...
	Silence and insanity, friend
	Are born when we come detached
	And attached again
	And again
	In us, through us, towards
	Nowhere else but
	Simple and charming:
	And it is predictable, Father
	That during nights I write
	Instead of sleeping
	And slipping into hymns
	So that insanity would remain
	And quiet
	Like the mulberry night tree
	On Nalbandyan 7, 2:50 AM.
	Bark one
		 Bark two
			 Bark three
	Mother knows, dark mulberry stains
	White hands
		  white clothes
			    white souls
	And ruin the perfectness
	With threats to make it better,
	Sevak says
	That light shines from our windows at night
	As messages to the universe...
	Tonight, I am writing a novel
	For the galaxies to scan
	Destroying any chance to save
	This little blue dead dwarf
	We call home
	The absence of which infinities won't notice...
	Please notice that we are
	Yet blessed...
	Therefore blessed...
	Bark one.
