	CITY WITHOUT STARS

	By Sara Margaryan


	you live in a city
	where stone scrapes the sky
	where the starts are hidden behind the roofs

	you live in a city 
	where the smoke of cigars
	makes the nostrils loose

	where the motion leads the crowd
	where the snow melts in mouth
	caught in air and coughed out

	I sleep on grass of emeralds
	and eat unripe and dusty plums
	right from the trees

	I share bread with funny ducks
	and quite seldom smoke cigars ? 
	it's my caprice

	you live in a city
	where music slaps wind
	where the glass is god

	you live in a city
	where the color of green
	turns habit into sport

	where the beauty should be dug
	where one beer drunk from mug
	does make you drunk...

	I catch the moon
	and sing and dance
	and call you ? 
	tell me once
	that you can see me

	how? where?
	among the cars

	you live in a city
	without stars

	September 2003
