from Pablo Neruda’s Bestiary—illustrated by Antonio Frasconi and translated by Elsa Neuberger.
I have always been curious about the erotic rabbit. Who excited them and whispers in their genital ears? They procreate endlessly and pay no attention to Saint Francis, they hear no nonsense: the rabbit mounts and remounts with an inexhaustible organism. I wish to speak with the rabbit, I like his flighty habits.
