Features of the Same Face



"Dear Roberta Sparrow, I have reached the end of your book and there are so many things that I need to ask you. Sometimes I’m afraid of what you might tell me. Sometimes I’m afraid that you’ll tell me that this is not a work of fiction. I can only hope that the answers will come to me in my sleep. I hope that when the world comes to an end, I can breathe a sigh of relief, because there will be so much to look forward to."

—Donnie Darko

“When he shall die,

Take him and cut him out in little stars,

And he will make the face of heaven so fine

That all the world will be in love with night

And pay no worship to the garish sun.”

― William Shakespeare, Romeo and Juliet

Peace on Earth, 1939

Grandpa Squirrel: Good will to men, yes, good will to men.

Baby Squirrel 1: What are men, Grandpa?

Baby Squirrel 2: Yeah, Grandpa, what are men?

Grandpa Squirrel: Huh? Well there ain’t no men in the world no more, sonnys. Nope, no more men. But as I remember the critters, well they was like monsters. They wore these big metal pots on their heads. They walked on their hind legs, and they carried terrible-looking shootin’ irons with knives in the end of them. Their eyes gleamed, and they had these tremendous big snoots, like this, that curled down and fastened down to their stomachs.

Baby Squirrel 1: Gee! I’m glad there ain’t no more men around.

Baby Squirrel 2: Me too.

You see, before he came down here, it never snowed. And afterwards, it did. If he weren’t up there now… I don’t think it would be snowing. Sometimes you can still catch me dancing in it.
