Famous quotes containing the word peeling:

    And we may be led, then, upward through more
    Powerful forms of poetry, past columns
    With peeling posters on them, to the country of indifference.
    Meanwhile if the swell diapasons, blooms
    Unhappily and too soon, the little people are nonetheless real.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)

    It’s peeling now, age has got it,
    a kind of cancer of the background
    and also in the assorted features.
    It’s like a rotten flag
    or a vegetable from the refrigerator,
    pocked with mold.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
