Michael E. Stone: In Dilijan

Do I have anything to say
these days?
Long together and
now apart, gone.

My state so common
that each lives it
yet mine is unique -- it’s mine,
and worthy of  a poem
or like a stye in the eye,
mine and commonplace,
but mine.

I eat
dark red royal basilicum,
regal leaves, kingly flavor,

In Dilijan
