      the worthless word for the day is: mesopygion

      [fr. Gk meso-, middle + pyge, the rump]
      rare : the cleavage of the buttocks

      (in the middle of the pyg family)

      "Even if they have the mesopygion of Ganymedes,
      the eye of Narkissos, the ankle of Hyakinthos,
      O cow-eyed Io! they steal your time, your rest,
      your attention. Be gone away!"
      - Guy Davenport, Eclogues (1981)

      "And precisely as he was trying not to think
      that little is as arousing as the [shadow] of
      a woman's veiled mesopygion, he was jolted by
      the belligerent epiphany that the day had been
      narrowing in complicity with his foreknowledge
      into the corner of the room..."
      - Rick Harsch, The Sleep of the Aborigines (2002)
