Geometry of the Woman

I am a woman
Round as the universe
A pyramid that ignores its secrets
Triangular in some parts
with perfect and calculable hypotenuses
on any one of its sides.

I am a woman
Square and stubborn
when it’s about you
Pentagonal when I plan
the most secret of my weapons

I am a woman
Lineal
the shortest distance
between your all and my nothing

I am a woman
point
perhaps of your references
