— T. S. Eliot,
quoted here in the entry
of 2:45 AM Friday

In memory of
Eugenio Montejo,
Venezuelan poet who

Excerpt form 'Sobremesa'-- 'Talking Across the Table'-- by the late Eugenio Montejo

From an obituary:

Montejo’s work “reached a wider audience thanks to the 2003 film ’21 Grams’ by Mexican director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu.

In one scene, Sean Penn’s character quoted a line from a 1988 poem by Montejo. It reads: ‘The earth turned to bring us closer. It turned on itself and in us, until it finally brought us together in this dream.'”
