accessing .docx documents

Lately I have been sent some documents with the file suffix ".docx" and
am at a loss to access them with command line tools. Unzip unzips them
okay, but the result is thre or four directories of things, with the
bulk of the document in a huge two line file containing an XML header
on the first line, and the entire balance of the document on the second

Has anybody figured out what to do with these things? Suggestions
