I LOVE YOUR EYES By Diana Der Hovanessian I love your eyes moving over my love, these words I once typed. Your eyelashes opening the sun in the east pushing horizons like twin Alexanders. I love that night. (Should I say "loved"?) Now in your time I am as still as Alexander, but you reading open all boundaries like the conqueror moving east. -- Diana Der Hovanessian is a Fulbright professor of American literature at Yerevan State University in 1994 and 1999, she is author of 17 books and has published in American Scholar, Poetry, Harvard Review, Nation, Paris Review, New Republic, and her poetry is regularly published in the Christian Science Monitor. She has awards from the Columbia Translation Center, P.E.N., Writers Union of America, and the Writers Union of Armenia.
