Body Bags

"The bags had a big zipper, and they'd open the zipper and shoot water into the bags with big hoses. With the zipper open and the bags sagging on the pegs, it looked like these big smiles. I called them the smiling bags of death."

(In Philadelphia, Lynch lived across the street from the city morgue, where he was fascinated by the empty body bags hung on pegs.)
