Quiero hacer sintaxis
con tu delicioso cuerpo.
en una coordinada,
copulativa, sin disyuntiva…
Variar entre subordinadas,
jugar a ser sustantiva
de tu complemento agente
—toda oración pasiva
me parece peligrosa—.
Jugar a ser adjetiva
del nombre que eres.
Jugar a ser adverbial
entre tantas circunstancias.
siempre aportan al núcleo.
Por no ponerme concesiva
en este análisis sintáctico.
