Pizarnik -- amantes


One of the species of cunnilingus poetry is the ode to the cunt in some form or other. In fact there can be reference to the clit and to the mouth without having the two of them come together (how sad!). This poem, by Alejandra Pizarnik of Argentina (I think she committed suicide in the 1960s but she was cool) is a good example. There is certainly reference to orgasmic girl-spunk, but it is much more subtle than other works.

«amantes»

una flor
no lejos de la noche
mi cuerpo mudo
se abre
a la delicada urgencia del rocío

"lovers"

a flower
so far from the night
my dumb body
does not open
to the delicate urgency of the dew.
