Wires

Famous quotes containing the word wires:

    Under a world of whistles, wires and steam
    Caboose-like they go ruminating through
    Ohio, Indiana—blind baggage—
    To Cheyenne tagging . . . Maybe Kalamazoo. See Vagagonds
    Hart Crane (1899–1932)

    The symmetrical piles of white bodies,
    the round white breast-shapes of the heaps,
    the smell of the smoke, the dogs the wires the
    rope the hunger. It had happened to others.
    There was a word for us. I was: a Jew.
    Sharon Olds (b. 1942)

    Putting people in a room and strapping wires to their wrist to find out if I make them tingle when I’m telling them about Beirut is a long way from Edward R. Murrow.
    Linda Ellerbee (b. 1932)
