Quote from "The Dark Knight"

my best movie quote is:

Craig McDermott: If they have a great personality and they're not great looking... then who *BEEP* cares?
Patrick Bateman: Well, let's just say hypotetically ok? What if they have a great personality?
[pause, all laugh]
Patrick Bateman: I know, I know.

Digging

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests; as snug as a gun.

Under my window a clean rasping sound
When the spade sinks into gravelly ground:
My father, digging. I look down

Till his straining rump among the flowerbeds
Bends low, comes up twenty years away
Stooping in rhythm through potato drills
Where he was digging.

The coarse boot nestled on the lug, the shaft
Against the inside knee was levered firmly.
He rooted out tall tops, buried the bright edge deep
To scatter new potatoes that we picked
Loving their cool hardness in our hands.

By God, the old man could handle a spade,
Just like his old man.

My grandfather could cut more turf in a day
Than any other man on Toner's bog.
Once I carried him milk in a bottle
Corked sloppily with paper. He straightened up
To drink it, then fell to right away
Nicking and slicing neatly, heaving sods
Over his shoulder, digging down and down
For the good turf. Digging.

The cold smell of potato mold, the squelch and slap
Of soggy peat, the curt cuts of an edge
Through living roots awaken in my head.
But I've no spade to follow men like them.

Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests.
I'll dig with it.

liddle, your line from heaney
"Between my finger and my thumb
The squat pen rests."

reminded me of my first reading of the Pearl (John Steinbeck) as a kid, nothing intellectual but it was my 1st intro to literature and i always remembered the description of the doctor's fingers ... and then again a description of the pearl buyer's fingers.

if my memory serves me right, it's about Kino a pearl diver who finds this pearl as large as an egg, and his journey to try to get money to cure his baby who is sick with fever. one would think the find would lead to happiness and freedom from poverty but it almost becomes a curse. some people say it's about socialism.

u'll probably find some strands of it within of Mice and Men (also by Steinbeck).

cluffy, sad to say but i dont read any more. i seem to watch movies more, and do crave the pleasure of reading or the time to read.
