	ARMENIAN BASILISK

	By Bedros B. Afeyan

	Accrued crust of varnished calyx
	Below a brooding brinksman's pride
	Grapnel gripping girded gasps
	Prophylactic progeny's cadence
	Or a precentor's calumny in a demitasse

	A ravaged nation hemorrhages, defoliates
	An ancient language irreversibly diffracts
	Into pockets of arid echo prisms
	Encryptions nesting unfulfilled troubadours
	Tympani vexed mosaic repeating
	Unsyllabic monastic monodies in taste.
