Famous quotes containing the word grape:

    I am a cowboy in the boat of Ra. Lord of the lash,
    the Loup Garou Kid. Half breed son of Pisces and
    Aquarius. I hold the souls of men in my pot. I do
    the dirty boogie with scorpions. I make the bulls
    keep still and was the first swinger to grape the taste.
    Ishmael Reed (b. 1938)

    Black girl black girl
    lips as curved as cherries
    full as grape bunches
    sweet as blackberries

    to me unless I go
    to it; a grape tendril
    ties a knot in knots till

    knotted thirty times,—
