Henrik Edoyan - THE WORD

1.

If the gods are immortal men -
then all men are divine.
If all men are divine
then there's one God -
the Word itself.

2.

"Life is same as death" -
they s aid in the East.
"Death is same as life" -
they said in the West.
Between the two
there's a line -- the word.

3.

Your life, it seems,
was a return home.
This is my l ife --
asleep or awake.
(Speech without word.)
Thus, two lives,
one loneliness.


Henrik Edoyan
