“It seems that it had been destined before that I should occupy myself so thoroughly with the vulture, for it comes to my mind as a very early memory, when I was still in the cradle, a vulture came down to me, he opened my mouth with his tail and struck me a few times with his tail against my lips.”
Leonardo Da Vinci

the elixir of your lips on which love flaunts itself.” CHARLES BAUDELAIRE, Les Fleurs du Mal

of great ash and moist summit,
drops of when and how, vague
comings and goings:
between lips and lips as along a shore
of sand and glass the wind passes.” PABLU NERUDA, “Pact (Sonata)”, Selected Poems
