lyrics

however many snakes
grow from my head
however many frogs
have to share my bed before you can
take this thorn from my side
i will still be calla-lily-white
as the day i was made
for our first time

by then i won’t be shy
of the pale threads in my marble thigh
how many pairs of hands,
after all, will have polished them
this last thorn to be eased
from its home white as the rest of me
i’ll yeild as i was made
just in time

long
white
thorn inside
cleansed
in light
just in time

lover, the bed is made
