	VERDICT

	By Kevork Kalayjian


	Discover the face placed on your destiny
	The past might be curious, enlightening, yet deadlocked
	It was said, `there would not be' its never late
	To learn the skill of discovery, it's as learning truth
	it was said that ` disappearance will occur after 2.5'

	What kind of unit is 2.5 love, separation, and infertility?
	A face will be discovered in a destiny, the past is deadlocked!
	At one stroke of a hammer solely to smash glass

	One distinct stroke of the hammer
	alas a gravel  used to smash glass 
	with a sinister sound solely administered
	to enslave my soul into terrifying repression
	sleigh of hand, all my limbs nailed 
	with poppy seeds and dried flowers,
	peculiar mistakes marching with no suitors.

	Look!
	Lofty, sublime banners, proclaiming the truth
	yet no nails to be found to sustain candor
	strike the hammer again and smash all belief
	sapience and sagacity, swell in sanguine limbs
