Picasso, Pablo: Her Great Thighs (Ses grosses cuisses in English)

Portre of Picasso, Pablo
Portre of Caws, Mary Ann

Back to the translator

Ses grosses cuisses (French)

Ses grosses cuisses
Ses seins
Ses hanches
Ses fesses
Ses bras
Ses mollets
Ses mains
Ses yeux
Ses joues
Ses cheveux
Son nez
Sa gorge
Ses larmes

les planètes les larges rideaux tirés et le ciel transparent caché derrière le grillage –
les lampes à l’huile et les grelots des canaris sucre entre les figues –
le bol de lait des plumes arrachés à chaque rire déshabillant
le nu du poids des armes enlevées aux fleurs du potager

tant de jeux morts pendus aux branches du préau de l’école irisées des chansons
lac leurre de sang et d’orties
roses trémières jouées aux dés
aiguilles d’ombre liquide et bouquets d’algues de cristal
ouvertes aux pas de danse des mouvantes couleurs
agités aux fond du verre versé
au mas que lilas vêtue de pluie

Her Great Thighs (English)

Her great thighs
Her breasts
Her hips
Her buttocks
Her arms
Her calves
Her hands
Her eyes
Her cheeks
Her hair
Her nose
Her throat
Her tears

the planets the wide curtain drawn and the transparent sky hidden behind the grill –
the oil lamp and the little bells of the canaries sweet between the figs –
the bowl of milk of feathers snatched from each laugh undressing
the nude removing the weight of the weapons taken from the garden flowers

so many games deadmen hanging from the branches of the schoolyard haloed with songs
lake the lure of blood and thistles
hollyhocks played in the dice
needles of liquid shadow and bouquet of crystal algae
open to the dance step of the moving colours
shaken in the bottom of the glass poured out
on the lilac mask dressed with rain
