I was one of the insatiables. The ones you'd always find sitting closest to the screen. Why do we sit so close? Maybe it was because we wanted to receive the images first. When they were still new, still fresh. Before they cleared the hurdles of the rows behind us. Before they'd been relayed back from row to row, spectator to spectator; until worn out, secondhand, the size of a postage stamp, it returned to the projectionist's cabin. Maybe, too, the screen was really a screen. It screened us... from the world.

Courtesy, restraint and generosity. A revolution is an uprising, a violent act by which one class overthrows another.

Tho

Theo

Listen to me, Tho. Before you can change the world you must realize that you, yourself, are part of it. You can't stand outside looking in.

Father

Poets don't sign petitions. They sign poems.
