„They darted down and rose up like a wave
Or buzzed impetuously as before;
One would have thought the corpse was held a slave
To living by the life it bore!“

—  Allen Tate

A Carrion, from Poems (1961).

„And that's life, then: things as they are,
This buzzing of the blue guitar.“

—  Wallace Stevens American poet 1879 - 1955

The Man With the Blue Guitar (1937)
Kontext: So that's life, then: things are they are?
It picks its way on the blue guitar.
A million people on one string?
And all their manner in the thing,
And all their manner, right and wrong,
And all their manner, weak and strong?
And that's life, then: things as they are,
This buzzing of the blue guitar.
