Lèvres pâmées

Maurice Rollinat 1846 (Châteauroux) – 1903 (Ivry-sur-Seine)



Les lèvres des femmes pâmées
Ont des sourires qui font peur
Dans la convulsive torpeur
Qui les tient à demi fermées.

Quand leurs plaintes inanimées
S’exhalent comme une vapeur,
Les lèvres des femmes pâmées
Ont des sourires qui font peur.

Le désir qui les a humées
Recule devant leur stupeur,
Et le mystère enveloppeur
Clôt dans ses gazes parfumées
Les lèvres des femmes pâmées.
