	The Archaeologist

	by Knarik O. Meneshian


	Allured once more
	to the breast of silent pageantries,
	his old, weary eyes
	become radiant and wide
	as he kneels before
	his icon of granite
	and chips away
	slivers of Time
	in quest of Man's
	     How?
		    When?
			   and
				  Why?

	Digging--
	Reaching deep
	into the cool darkness,
	his fingers touch a spearhead.
	Digging more--
	Reaching deeper,
	he brushes clean
	a dotted
	shard of pottery,
	a coin of King Hetum,
	and smiles.

	Again--
	Bits of Yesterday
	are cradled in his palms.
