Et hic furor non deficit mihi iam toto anno. In me, Amor, tardus, non cogitat ullas artes nec meminit ire notas vias ut prius.

—(Propertius, Elegia I:I )
J’ai perdu mon Euridicerien n’égale mon malheur;Je succombe à ma doleur.Euridice, Euridice,réponds, quel supplice, réponds-moientends ma voix qui t’appelle…Vaine espérance

J’ai perdu mon Euridice
rien n’égale mon malheur;
Je succombe à ma doleur.
Euridice, Euridice,
réponds, quel supplice, réponds-moi
entends ma voix qui t’appelle…
Vaine espérance

A futakuchi-onna (二口女, “two-mouthed woman”) is a yōkai in Japanese mythology: these demons are women with two mouths.The origin of a futakuchi-onna’s second mouth is often linked to how little a woman eats. In many stories, the soon-to-be futakuchi-onna is a wife of a miser and rarely eats.
