Бокаччо)”
Giovanni Boccaccio, The Decameron

your hip
is the curve of the wineglass
filled to the brim,
your breast is the cluster,
your hair the light of alcohol,
your nipples, the grapes
your navel pure seal
stamped on your barrel of a belly,
and your love the cascade
of unquenchable wine,
the brightness that falls on my senses,
the earthen splendor of life.”
Pablo Neruda, The Essential Neruda: Selected Poems

Jesse Jackson
