An Emetic and Triptych

What is the first thing that came to mind when I saw this emetic?

Well, there is only one appropriate response to that picture: A picture or altarpiece in three compartments

Here the soil is barren
Here – nothing grows
But crosses
They – know not what they do
You – your forgiveness
Falls as dew
Nailed upon a wooden frame
Twisted yet unbroken
Open mounted a silent choir
Understood, unspoken
Never was there heard a sound
Until the heavens opened
Now the tide is turning
To other-wordly yearning
Through the sun’s eclipse seems final
Surely he will rise again

Roxy Music, Triptych, album Country Life
