He says he’s jealous of the moon, because you look at it. He’s jealous of the sun, because it warms you. He says, I feel you, even when I’m not feeling you. I talk to you when I’m not talking to you. I love you, even when I’m not loving you.

Interviewer: If you didn’t paint, what do you think you’d be doing? 

Basquiat: Directing movies, I guess. I mean ideally, yeah.
