Verse 3.71.42

क्वाकारोऽम्बरपूरकः क्व च नवं तुच्छात्मसूचीवपू ।
रोदोरन्ध्रसमं क्व वास्य कुहरं क्वेदं च सूचीमुखम् ।
क्व ग्रासो बहुमांसभारबहुलः क्वाब्बिन्दुना भोजनं ।
सूक्ष्मास्म्येतदहो मयैव रचितं स्वात्मक्षये नाटकम् ॥ ४२ ॥

kvākāro'mbarapūrakaḥ kva ca navaṃ tucchātmasūcīvapū |
rodorandhrasamaṃ kva vāsya kuharaṃ kvedaṃ ca sūcīmukham |
kva grāso bahumāṃsabhārabahulaḥ kvābbindunā bhojanaṃ |
sūkṣmāsmyetadaho mayaiva racitaṃ svātmakṣaye nāṭakam || 42 ||

Where is that towering stature reaching to the sky, and what is this new earned contemptible form of the needle; where is that mouth, hollow as the vault of the sky, and what is this hole of the needle? Where is that heap of my flesh meat, and what is this drop of watery food? Ah! how lean have I grown, but who is to be blamed for an act of my own doing?
