Vivian Kurkjian: Poem of Love

I will pull my hair back
In an old maid's knot
And don the widest rimmed spectacles
I can find
To hide from you
And the other men until you see
What does not show
And only then
Will I let
These long brown locks fall
As you see fit.

This poem has appeared in "ARMENIAN-NORTH AMERICAN POETRY: AN ANTHOLOGY" (St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Manna Publishing, 1974). Lorne Shirinian, editor.
