"Steam coming off the planet, clouds of fleecy steam as boy and girl populations clash in religious riots, hot and whistling like a graveyard sodomist our little planet embraces its fragile yo-yo destiny, tuned in the secular mind like a dying engine.

They do not hear the individual noises shhh,hiss, they hear the sound of the sounds together, they behold the interstices flashing up and down the cone of the flowering whirlwind."
Author: Leonard Cohen

His back was turned on Wuperainma, his pigs and his friends, his childhood, and he clutched a frail stick in his hand."
Author: Peter Matthiessen
