'SURREAL TRASH IS GOOD FOR YOU' MOM SAYS by Ani Boghossian When the world goes extremely koo-koo I like to hide in my closet And play sudoku on my phone... I can reach the last level By World War III, I'm sure... Today my phone's batteries are low... So I cough a good deal of Guerlain on my shirt It all starts with oil paint Than the colors scream for Clint Mansell Because I've been painting the moon So the moon is high, my Jamaican friend Respect me for my shoes The flooring is deep. My psychedelic friends laugh At the tints of shafts swirling in the mist And I stare and stare At the heavy flamenco of atmospheres in blue In which staring elves are cuddled Sitting on Echmiadzin roofs Their knees skinny Like the branches they kiss, And there are cats That tap dance with top hats And Louis Armstrong dogs In the alley pubs of gingery dust They puff in the air as the old bicycle glide on them Through Nalbandian, Kirov Their riders are snoozing on the velvet Fields of grain That are to become Holly bread in the Nazi ovens They say they love the smell of lavash The `Young Turks' of Van, Bitlis, Kars Gramps didn't make it when he went for water The brides of joo-joo stars are crying in deserts of Ginarbe's grave.... It has a line, a straight line on my spine I love it here, dad, Will call you tomorrow, after GMUN.... -- Ani Boghossian was born in Echmiadzin back in cold, dark 1989. She still lives in Echmiadzin, yet went to school in Yerevan ("Aghasi Ayvazyan" Varjaran), She is now in her last year studying International Relations at Yerevan State University.
