“I strike at them, striking, they wheeling in a long lunge, the buggy wheeling onto two wheels and motionless like it is nailed to the ground and the horses motionless like they are nailed by the hind feet to the center of a whirling plate.”

William Faulkner, As I Lay Dying, The Modern Library Editions, 2000

Notes: alliteration, repitition
