	NINETY EIGHT SPRINGS

	By Silva Zanoyan Merjanian


	April skies,
	covert layers 
	in pale blue.

	She's drawn.
	Weight 
	of mass graves
	shackled
	by her tongue.  

	She stretches,
	digs 
	into cerulean

	Scratches past
	dressed skin,
	ninety eight 
	springless blue.  

	Brown blood
	fingernails,
	air with air
	spread tasteless
	on Deir-ez-zor sand
	shifting, burning
	heaps of bones


	Her eyes,
	deny their hands,
	stained
	with Armenian blood
	scrubbing a black sky
	never to pale blue...
