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. -- 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/
