Krikor Ficici - LAST WISH

If this were the last sheet of paper
to write on
only your last thoughts
what would you do?
Would you create something new?
Or continue repeating those
you’ve written over
the years?
Love love
butter bread
cheese bread
life life
live live…
Or would you sing
of other feelings:
Of going to Venus
of conquering other planets
of traveling to indefinite
destinations…?
If this were the last sheet of paper
what things would you
be saying?
One more sheet please
one more sheet….

Krikor Ficici - 1980
translated by Tatul Sonentz
