Intellectual Cuties: No. 9 in a series: mathematics girl

I am pretty sure this is the same woman (talking about maths). She looks so much better to me in the second video. It’s the hair being up and her makeup. She also seems perkier in the second video. In any case, she is a worthy addition to my series of “intellectual cuties”.

I looked down at your face

I looked down at your face,
a camellia in the dark,
Dare I touch it for the first

Should we dig by the moon,
who will hear the scream
like a mandrake as we die
together for the first time?

Redrafted version

Her level gaze was
my horizon,
her swaying hips
an earthquake
in my mind,
her floating skirts
the sea that retreats
with the tide.
