Part III: Artsakh - Nagorny Karabagh

War veteran, Shusha, 2008

My generation
Maro Markaryan

Everyone in my generation
is wearing frost now.
Snow falls early.
Even with the sun
still smoldering
my generation tills ice,
ploughs snow and furrows
stones. Everyone
in my generation wears frost.
It has been unseasonably cold.

Deeply impressive, frozen memories.
Is there any hope for kids growing up among the ruins at both sides of the military lines? And will the outside world finally care?
