Legna Rodríguez Iglesias x Veštica 


You touch a woman
and she trembles
you spit her out and she comes out
covered in saliva
you can destroy
a woman
how do you destroy her?
touch her
spit her out
touch her
spit her out
between one thing and another
tell her that all of a sudden
you have begun to love her
that simply
you just love her
and that’s it
finally touch her
and spit her out.
