Mihran H. Azhderian: Things

But this? What
is it? ... And that and that.
All are pirouetting
in a flight.

Oh how I cling
like a bat to any wall
in the void:
to any gossamer...

to a mere dust
of moonlight straw
(Oh how I fail I fall)

in the void.

Mihran H. Azhderian, Fruit Under Leaves,  Howell-North Press, Berkeley, CA, 1946
