ANTIQUE, by ARTHUR RIMBAUD Poet's Biography
First Line: Graceful son of pan. About your forehead, crowned with flowerets and berries
Last Line: Thigh, and that left leg.
Graceful son of Pan! About your forehead, crowned with flowerets and berries,
your eyes, precious balls, are in motion. Stained with brown sediment, your
cheeks deepen in hollows. Your fangs flash. Your chest is like a zither, your
blond arms are astir with tinklings. Your heart is beating in that belly where
the double sex sleeps. Walk out at night, softly moving that thigh, that second
thigh, and that left leg.
