nuptials quotes- 5 of
It is a well-known fact that we always recognize our homeland when we are about to lose it.
It is the hour when stink and sweat
Subside to let the flesh forget
Buzzards float upon the sky
Shrilling a metaphysic cry,
Two dollars now prognosticate
An image supine and elate
For Jenny sweet will keep the date....
A hunger flashing in the eye
Which jutting bellies would belie.
