Famous quotes containing the word lounge:

    we are the circle of the crazy ladies
    who sit in the lounge of the mental house
    and smile at the smiling woman
    who passes us each a bell,
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)

    I drink the five o’clock martinis
    and poke at this dry page like a rough
    goat. Fool! I fumble my lost childhood
    for a mother and lounge in sad stuff
    with love to catch and catch as catch can.
    Anne Sexton (1928–1974)
