Very vivid imagery. It's a strong poem and brilliantly written (as pretty much all your poems are). I feel like I'm saying the same thing over and over when I comment on your poetry, but truth to tell, it really is good.
For grammatical criticism, I think "says" in line four should be "remains". Also, "A Persian in pounded hard to the face" I think you mean to say "is". Is that a typo?
Anyway, it's pretty difficult to pick out any real flaws here.
