like pubic hair around a penis

A quick snippet from "I Hate Martin Amis et al", by Peter Barry:

"Today I'm shooting from the Jewish cemetery high up above Grbavica.  The irony doesn't escape me - I lie amongst the dead and attempt to add to their number.  They are my allies, my friends, we are on the same side.  The dead provide excellent cover: the grass clusters at the base of the white, smooth stones like pubic hair around a penis."

Thoroughly enjoying this so far.
