    Manila’s perfume
    Fanned by the coconut palms
    The thighs of Glory

    As their ship is easing into its dock, a crescent-shaped formation of flying fish erupts from the water. It moves like a dune being blown across the desert. The fish are silver an leaf-shaped. Each one strikes the water with a metallic click, and the clicks merge into a crisp ripping noise. The crescent glides beneath a pier, flowing around its pilings, and disappears it the shadows underneath.

    Neal Stephenson, Cryptonomicon, pg. 42.

    Thank you, Erik and others.Report
