"Body of a Woman" by Pablo Neruda - Body of a woman, white hills, white thighs,
you look like a world, lying in surrender.
My rough peasant's body digs in you
"Would you trade
a solid foundation
for crooked walls
filled with broken windows?

Absolute and without shadow.
Enraged her eyes black diamonds cut a weaker man with the malevolence every woman carves from its soul when scorned .

She has no idea what to say
All she can do
Is hope they don't notice the next...
