  1. To Our Knight
    Hrant Dink
    (1954-killed by Turkish bullets
    on his head on his chest… January 19, 2007)

    To our Knight
    Who had no sword
    Only fingers on pens
    That carved on many

    He was born
    A martyr . . .
    Still alive
    With his astrocytes* . . .
    For Justice must prevail.

    * astrocytes: brain cells, medical term.
