My mouth will have ardors of GehennaMy mouth will be a hell for you of sweetness and seductionThe angels of my mouth will be enthroned in your heartThe soldiers of my mouth will storm your trenchesThe priests of my mouth will burn incense to your beautyYour soul will tremble like an area struck by an earthquakeYour eyes will overflow with the love amassed from every look of love since human time beganMy mouth will be an army raised against you an army of rabbleChangeable as a sorcerer who knows many changes of shapeThe orchestra and the choir of my mouth will tell you my loveIt murmurs my love to you nowWhile I stare at my watch and wait to go over the top—Guillaume Apollinaire, “Section Leader”Art Credit Steve Kim

My mouth will have ardors of Gehenna
My mouth will be a hell for you of sweetness and seduction
The angels of my mouth will be enthroned in your heart
The soldiers of my mouth will storm your trenches
The priests of my mouth will burn incense to your beauty
Your soul will tremble like an area struck by an earthquake
Your eyes will overflow with the love amassed from every look of love since human time began
My mouth will be an army raised against you an army of rabble
Changeable as a sorcerer who knows many changes of shape
The orchestra and the choir of my mouth will tell you my love
It murmurs my love to you now
While I stare at my watch and wait to go over the top

Guillaume Apollinaire, “Section Leader”
