Quote #4

You're always inside me, a woman answered,
at peace with the body's finitude, (20-21)

The woman to whom our speaker is talking doesn't seem to share his confusion. In fact, she seems just fine and dandy. By comparison, our speaker seems totally anxious and upset. One reason this woman is totally at ease is that she's confronted "the body's finitude." And that makes sense, right? Not being afraid or worried about death would probably make a person less anxious, less flustered, and a bit less confused.
