VEERED VERDICT VESTIBULE By Bedros B. Afeyan A hustler's hiss hymn Havoc ballads of hovering apologies Modern median crimes Temperate tremulous clouds Diverging towards unsculpted keys Serenading barcodes scanned to oblivion Where cipher wheels scramble distress calls Till madness itself extends rented arms And man falls to pretend indifference Or solidarity with working wakeful Silent victims of extremal avarice Severed sand blasted mirage In ceremonial white silk satin soiled Undergarment draping tails of piano Action thrown overboard for a price. -- Dr. Bedros Afeyan is a theoretical physicist who works and lives in the Bay area with his wife, Marine. He writes in Armenian and in English and also paints and sculpts. Samples of his work can be found on the web by clicking on his personal web pages at: http://126.96.36.199/
