Rose Of Jericho

Rose-of-Jericho

I pushed her buttons

And she opened up like a flower

What’s that the image of?

An unfolding fleshy flower

The sacred rose of Jericho

Tattooed to my ribs

The five wounds of Christ

The seven veils of wisdom

The smiling secret cyphers

Signalled between a lover’s lips

Behind closed doors

Between the sheets

Beneath the heaving flesh

Sliding – rolling on the mattress

Pressed against her bosom

Jammed between her thighs

Inside her velvet prison

My walls come tumbling down

But just in the moment
