André Breton quote

“Your neck is pearled barley. Your hair is a wood fire. Your mouth is a bouquet of stars. Your eyelashes are a child’s first stroke of writing. Your eyebrows are the edge of a swallow’s nest. Your shoulders are dolphins’ heads under the ice. Your fingers? The ace of hearts. Your armpits? Beechnut and midsummer night. Your arms are the sea foam and flood gate foam. Your feet are bunches of keys.”

These lines are extracted from André Breton’s poem, “Free Union (l’union libre)”, which can be found in the book, Earthlight. The version of the quote above is from Free Will Astrology by Rob Breszny.
