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 -- Kevork K.
