Used in print

(Octavia Waldo, A Cup of the Sun....)

Yet if he were not there , they would have missed him , as they would have missed the sounds of bees buzzing against the screen_door in early June ; or the smell of thick tomato_paste - the ripe smell that was both sweet and sour - rising_up from aluminum trays wrapped in fly dotted cheesecloth .

It swayed with the wicker swings and screeched with the rusted hinges of screen_doors .
