Buttons

Famous quotes containing the word buttons:

    Ah, my dear Madam, ah, “Mr.” Serge Solntsev, how easy it is to guess that the author’s name is a pseudonym, that the author is not a man! Every sentence of yours buttons to the left.
    Vladimir Nabokov (1899–1977)

    I have no connections here; only gusty collisions,
    rootless seedlings forced into bloom, that collapse.
    ...
    I am the Visiting Poet: a real unicorn,
    a wind-up plush dodo, a wax museum of the Movement.
    People want to push the buttons and see me glow.
    Marge Piercy (b. 1936)

    Now your beer belly hangs outlike Fatso.
    You are popping your buttons and expelling gas.
    How can I lie down with you, my comical beau
    when you are so middle-aged and lower-class.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
