Hrant Dink

by Jack Hirschman

Here truths Hrant Dink,
here braves.

In our grave mouths
the light of his courage

pulsates like deathless
hearts beating against

all genocidal, fat and
fatuous nationalisms

and their pure killers
who are filth’s origin

and the lies that poison
even the rivers

of mothers’ milk.
Hear Hrant Dink’s truth

and remember to re – member
the amputated body

of the soul of the world,
and pass his glory forward.
