	A DROP OF BLOOD
		on the Slide of a Microscope

	By Lusine Haroyan 


	I felt the heat of your lips in my spine...
	My body desired you-
	powerful and nihilist.
	I dreamt to have the tattoo 
	of Eternity on my breast.
	I crashed the panes of the windows
	and wandered nakedly to seek my totem.
	I embraced the blue adagio of time...
                                    Over there
	I see puritans...
                                                            At a distance
	fire, faces...
                                    Taboo...
	taboo...
                        And a gray wolf.
                                    A wounded gray wolf.
                                                A howl...
	owoo...owoo...
                                    Blood in the snow...
