Famous quotes containing the word air:

    By the roadside a hideous carrion, quivering
    On a clean bed of pebbly clay,
    Her legs flexed in the air like a courtesan,
    Burning and sweating venomously,
    Calmly exposed its belly, ironic and wan,
    Clamorous with foul ecstasy.
    Allen Tate (1899–1979)
