Diana Der-Hovanessian: Crows

The crows and vultures at Der Zor still wait
for Turks to send more food

Vahakn Davtian

But no more food arrives and
the senders indeed deny
they ever sent the crows feed,
or any Armenians died.

These are Turkish bones every-
where, they claim.
How could they be Armenian?
No one’s here with that name.
