La belle, si tu veux, je ferai ton lit

Language: French (Français)

La belle, si tu veux, je ferai ton lit
Dans le décor sanglant de ma boutique.
Mes couteaux seront les miroirs magiques
Où le jour se lève, éclate et pâlit.
Je ferai ton lit creux et chaud
Dans le ventre ouvert d’une génisse
Et, quand tu dormiras, pour qu’il te rajeunisse
Je veillerai sur lui comme un bourreau sur l’échafaud.
