Markings 202

Josephine Bruce

Stay perfect rose

growing out of the twilight

intense

upon the redolent air

I think of you now

hanging in dark pendulous blooms

always at the fringes of memory

an unforgettable

crimson perfume

an intoxication with velvet

deep petal-red with softness

flesh brushing thorns

entrusting every sense

with ecstasy.

Jeff Guess

45 Stone Street, Blair Athol, South Australia, 5084. (circa 1958)
