“of women and boys”

….She turns her ass into a planet, bends her bulging belly in the shape of a new woman, like sensual mandala.
She multiplies herself playfully into a variety of forms; hilarious, brooding, wild, seducing, grotesque; beings appearing out of the black luminous spirits.
The men are dreaming or asleep at the lap of their women / friends, quietly bending under the hovering feet of their mistress, or sitting alone with a melancholic gaze. A penis dripping under a butterfly leaf… (“larme dámour”)
