And they conspired between hot wet lips, clutching at each other's clothes to put poison in the tea, trembling hands to the till and each other's flesh, to wind a cocoon of sin between the pineapple and peaches.

    Thanks, bennymix. Later in the book, in a different setting with different people, I found this.

    My dear Chris, don't worry now. I'm here. I think it's a fine room, safe, nest of love. And you won't be lonely again. I tell you there are good things and pints of the best and pineapples too and fields and guts and lust, soil and bull. Sebastian, do you really think that way? (From The Ginger Man by J. P. Donleavy.

    Might there not be a connection between the mentions of "pineapples"? Thanks again. --- tk
