    Is this homework?

    The Innocence of Solomon - Poem by Nick Joaquin

    Sheba, Sheba, open your eyes!
    The apes defile the ivory temple,
    the peacocks chant dark blasphemies:
    but I take your body for mine to trample,
    I laugh where once I bent the knees.
    Yea, I take your mouth for mine to crumple,
    drunk with the wisdom of your flesh.
    But wisdom never was content
    and flesh when ripened falls at las:
    what will I have when the seasons mint
    your golden breasts into golden dust?
    Let me arise and follow the river
    back to its source: I would bathe my bones
    among the chaste rivuletsthat quiver
    out of the clean primeval stones.
    Yea, bathe me again in the early vision
    my soul tongued forth before your mouth
    made of a kiss a fierce contrition
    salting the waters of my youth…
    Sheba, Sheba, close my eyes!
    The apes have ravished the inner temple,
    the peacocks rend the sacred veil
    and on the manna feast their fill-
    but chaliced drowsily in your ample
    arms, with each brief bliss that dies
    my own deep sepulcher I seal.

    Read this first: Expectations for the Homework Help board

    Do not simply retype or paste a question from your book or study material

    We won't do your homework questions for you.
    You were given the assignment for you to learn.

    If you come up with your own answer and post it for us to critique that is within reason.

    If you have some SPECIFIC questions that you couldn't find or didn't understand, we may help with that.
    But this is your assignment, so show us you have at least attempted to complete it on your own.

    Thank you.
