Self-deprecation is worth its weight in smoldering phoenix-ashes and baby unicorn tears.
or; "Retrato"

Manos morenas,

dedos largos, estrechos,

uñas pintadas perfectamente púrpureas,

muñeca frágil, delicada,

venas azules.


Hombro fuerte,

lleno de energía, alfilado,

cubierto por bufanda negra y gruesa,

piel blanda, oscura,

dulce, salada.


Cuello porcelano,

mejillas rosadas con pecas,

labios llenos, rojos, cálidos, plenos,

ojos espléndidos, verdes,

sonrisa única.


Te beso.

Now that, my friend, is very sexy.

Perhaps a translation, while it loses all of the intrinsic beauty of the language:


Brown hands,
long, thin fingers,
fingernails painted a perfect purple,
fragile, delicate wrist,
blue veins.

Firm shoulder,
full of energy,sharp,
covered by a thick black scarf,
soft, dark skin,
sweet, salty.

Porcelain neck,
rouged, freckled cheeks,
full, red, hot, (dammit there's too words for full in Spanish) lips,
splendid green eyes,
one-of-a-kind smile.

I kiss you.


Thanks, by the way, Zoo.

De nada.

Wow, she really does sound like a beauty.  And an inspiration too.  I like it.
