“Julio and Tenoch told her many other stories. Each story reinforced their bond, creating an inseparable entity. The stories, although adorned by personal mythology, were true. But as truth is always partial, some facts were omitted. It was never mentioned how Julio lit matches to hide the smell in Tenoch’s house… Or that Tenoch used his foot to lift the toilet seat at Julio’s house. Those were details that one didn’t need to know about the other.”

Y Tu Mamá También (2001), dir Alfonso Cuaron | DoP Emmanuel Lubezki


“In the sea of desks,

There’s talk of games and bags

And long pipes that leak dreams 

With the strike of a match. 

And there’s a loudness to the whispers I hear. 

Whispers shouldn’t be that loud, should they? 

There’s a girl over there 

Who everyone knows 

And men without ears who will

Stand by the door for a price. 

In long hallways, there are angry mobs of dwarves 

And rats 

And one single angel.”
