Red Rose - Poem by Reza parhizgar

Red rose
Red rose
He led me to the rose garden
And darkling, he tucked a rose in my restless trembling tresses
And finally
Slept with me on a rose petal
Oh, paralytic pigeons!
Oh, inexperienced menopausic trees, oh blind windows!
A red rose is now sprouting below my heart and deep in my loin
A red rose
ed rose
Red As a blood stain

Ah, I am pregnant, pregnant, pregnant
