aqui estoy, por alli voy, come come come!

Bare breasted, full ripe,heavy; belly plump & creased like a wine grape.

The chorus greets me timorously but I am less coy.

I line them up, el duende, el poeta, el insurgente, el musico.

I set them in the niches of my chest like a consecrated automaton.
