His ears stuck out like teacups
and his tongue, my God, his tongue,
like a red worm and when he kissed
it crawled right in.”

—Bible: Hebrew Proverbs, 30:18-19.
From the oracle of Agur, son of Jakeh.
“The wide wonder of Broadway is disconsolate in the daytime; but gaudily glorious at night, with a milling crowd filling sidewalk and roadway, silent, going up, going down, between upstanding banks of brilliant lights, each building braided and embossed with glowing, many-coloured bulbs of man-rayed luminance. A glowing valley of the shadow of life. The strolling crowd went slowly by through the kinematically divine thoroughfare of New York.”
—Sean OCasey (18841964)
