"I am a slave...'
I am a slave to the nudity of women.
I do not know with what resolve
I could stand against it, a naked woman
Asking of me anything.
An unclothed woman is sometimes other things.
I see her in a dish of green pears.
From "Teodoro Luna Confesses..." by Alberto Ríos. The complete poem is here.
Das Bad, Sommerabend, Félix Vallotton, 1892
