  • Harlem sunsets I came across this one in a Raymond Chandler novel and, to the best of my knowledge, he's the only one who's used it. Here's the quote:

    "One time there was five smokes carved Harlem

    sunsets on each other down on East Eighty-four.

    One of them was cold already. There was blood on

    the furniture, blood on the walls, blood even on

    the ceiling."

    It means "cutting someone with a blade pretty badly". Not a terribly useful expression, but extremely graphic!
