lazarus (42)

Lazarus I would lie if I said it had nothing to do
with hands washed and washed clean
of fingertips that know trigger,bolt,
telescopic sight, focus dial, scope.
I would lie, lie o Lazarus, Lazareye if I said
it had nothing to do immaculate
hands, sweet lemony or cherry
your fingertips and how they know
the desert, the valley, the wadis, cool shade
of the mulberry, my body, you know, o you know
like trigger, bolt, focus dial, scope.
