	STILL LIFE

	By Shushan Avagyan


	A broken typewriter
	two rolls of Tungsten film
	a newspaper with a photograph
	of the burning twin towers
	a City Lights publication
	of Kaddish & other poems
	a pair of bright yellow sunglasses
	in the red Polaroid case
	which i stole from my mother's bureau
	[before i left her house]
	an old issue of Depi Yerkir
	and a box of Kotex tampons:
	all crammed 
	on my brown folding table.
