Հայաստան- w armenii

Lori Region, Armenia

Living in this space
is both as familiar as
a mother’s embrace and
as foreign to me as
another planet

The juxtaposition
of the known and the
unknown sinks like the
music of a long lost
cousin into my being

A whisper calling on
me to remember that
which was never my
experience, imploring
me to recall it

Memories swirl at
certain tastes and
smells but they are
not wholly mine, or
even entirely real

Histories that are
more myths than truths,
wishes parading as
realities and identities
no more solid

than the familiar songs
that envelope me
