Santa Maria Da Feira

Pensando cada dia, cada hora
Pensando en ti
Caminando, mi cesta llena de moras
Son para ti
Temprano por la tarde y por la noche
Sueño de ti


(Devendra Banhart)

Sonidos de la sala de operaciones.

Un viejo obeso con frac camina arrastrando un pie haciendo un ruido particular, a rengo. Calza guantes de goma y se acerca a una muchacha muy bella tendida sobre algodones. Puede estar atada. Dibuja un corte. Toma un bisturí y lo hunde a la altura del corazón de la muchacha. Practica un gran tajo y aparece un mecanismo de relojería en vez de corazón, no hay sangre.

(Así empieza el guión de Pubis Angelical, de Manuel Puig).

Harry Burns

I love that you get cold when it's 71 degrees out. I love that it takes you an hour and a half to order a sandwich. I love that you get a little crinkle above your nose when you're looking at me like I'm nuts. I love that after I spend the day with you, I can still smell your perfume on my clothes. And I love that you are the last person I want to talk to before I go to sleep at night. And it's not because I'm lonely, and it's not because it's New Year's Eve. I came here tonight because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

(When Harry Met Sally)
