"...eight kind of prayers to grease the passage / singing to wake all three / of the triurnal host from their slumber / and rouse the everlasting eternities / down to the subaltern deities / and plague and endurance of scripture / eulogy and sermon to put them all / back into the sleep of the angelic heavens / where even Mizrez Bouchier sed by god / she could feel her blood sugar dropping" — David Lee, The 21 Gun Salute
