Famous quotes containing the word plaster:

    The shadow of the Venetian blind on the painted wall,
    Shadows of the snake-plant and cacti, the plaster animals,
    Focus the tragic melancholy of the bright stare
    Into nowhere, a hole like the black holes in space.
    John Ashbery (b. 1927)
