PUBIC ROSE song lyrics 
by Joel Sattler 

[based on a translation of the first poem of 
20 LOVE POEMS by Pablo Neruda] 

body of woman 
thigh white hills 
you look like a world 
in full surrender 

my body works you 
like a field hand 
and makes the sun leap 
from the depths of your gender 

I was a tunnel 
the birds flew out 
and the night 
chose to invade 

to save my life 
I made me a knife 
like an arrow ring 
a stone in sling 

but now it's payback 
and I love you 
body of silk 
of moss of milk 

the ships of breast 
the eyes that know 
the pubic rose 
voice sad and slow 

pubic rose 
my pubic rose 
where she goes 
nobody knows 
where she been 
nobody sent 
who could guess 
where she went ? 

body of woman 
I save your grace 
my thirst without limit 
my changable race 

dark riverbeds 
where thirst is infernal 
worn out from lust 
and pain eternal 

pubic rose 
my pubic rose 
where she goes 
nobody knows 
where she been 
nobody sent 
who could guess 
where she went ?
