Rose - you are so sweet,
Fills the room
And seduces the evil intent
In my lustful body.
How could I,
How could any man, wish to corrupt
You are so na´ve in yor splendour,
So splendid in your na´vetee,
But underneath that heavenly, most-wonderful-in-all-Creation-exterior,
I bet you're not so fucking innocent!
[The above was first published in the 1987 anthology We're Coming For Your Telecom Shares].
