HOWARD’S USAGE:

—And a dozen death-blots blotched him
On jowl and shank and huckle,
And he knocked on his skull with his knuckle
And laughed—if you’d call it laughter—
At the billion facets of dying
In his outstart eye-balls shining.—

[from “The Skull of Silence”; to read the complete poem, see The Collected Poetry of Robert E.

Howard, p. 201]
