Looking at my friend’s bookshelf

May 17, 2016 under Poetry

As you guys know, I spent a week in Vancouver.

Part of my stay was in my friend’s apartment, part in the hotel. It’s quite amazing what you can learn about your friends when you stay with them for a few days. I spotted a bunch of erotic art books (certainly I had a peak and every second picture has stockings in it), for example. Never knew she is into that!

Here are some quotes that revolve around stockings and feet that I found from that book that I thought to share with you. I wish I could share some pictures, but I must say some of them kind of shocked me by being so explicit for those times. Many of those artists actually remained anonymous.

 

“I couldn’t help it. I can resist everything except temptation.”

From Lady Windermere’s Fan, Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)

 

“… continual excitement of trousers and petticoats, the crisp sound of stockings caressed…”

From a poem, Lone Gentleman, by the Chilean poet Pablo Neruda

 

“How beautiful are thy feet in sandals, O prince’s daughter!”

By King Solomon, Song of Songs
