Famous quotes containing the words hirsch and/or emanuel:

    A hook shot kisses the rim and
    hangs there, helplessly, but doesn’t drop

    and for once our gangly starting center
    boxes out his man and times his jump

    perfectly, gathering the orange leather
    from the air like a cherished possession
    —Edward Hirsch (b. 1950)

    In the atom’s fizz and pop we heard possibility
    uncorked. Taffeta wraps whispered on davenports.
    A new planet bloomed above us; in its light
    the stumps of cut pine gleamed like dinner plates.
    The world was beginning all over again, fresh and hot;
    we could have anything we wanted.
    —Lynn Emanuel (b. 1949)
