Streets are like ribbons. They're like ribbons, and they're dotted
with facts. Fact ribbons, I guess. That's potential subject matter
to me, and so I take some things and I write them down and I
look at them forever and forever and forever, and I might use
something 10 years afterward that I had noticed before, you see.
