Ipse dixit, 135

di L'uva, e l'ozio

Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Il ratto di Proserpina

Gian Lorenzo Bernini, Il ratto di Proserpina

When man
enters woman,
like the surf biting the shore,
again and again,
and the woman opens her mouth in pleasure
and her teeth gleam
like the alphabet,
Logos appears milking a star,
and the man
inside of woman
ties a knot
so that they will
never again be separate
and the woman
climbs into a flower
and swallows its stem
and Logos appears
and unleashed their rivers.

 This man,
this woman
with their double hunger,
have tried to reach through
the curtain of God
and briefly they have,
though God
in His perversity
unties the knot.

Anne Sexton, When Man Enters Woman
