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 -- Sara Margaryan was born in Yerevan, Armenia.
