Movie Poetry Madness(The madness continues)

"One creature...caught...caught in a place he cannot stir from in the dark. Alone,outnumbered hundreds to one. Nothing to live for...but his memories....."-The Omega  Man,1971.

"Reason only satisfies man's rational requirements. Desire,on the other hand,encompasses everything. Desire is life."-The Gambler,1974.

"Guilty?That's just something someone says in court when their luck runs out."-The Onion Field,1979.

"Out of rats alley,where dead men lost their bones. T.S.Eliot turns out to be as good a prophet as he was a poet."-The Omega Man-1971.

"...i was thinking,if it were in my power,I'd release Powell and Smith. Drop all the charges. Let them walk. If only i could send some lawyers and judges to the gas chamber."-The Onion Field,1979.

"Its spring time out there slugger. You best go find out who you are,(finger snaps)come on...................................now what's wrong with you,you old buzzard,now come on. Don't be afraid. Out there you can kick up the dust. You can dance to fiddle music,watch the alfalfa bloom. If you like,you can see gold teeth,taste sweet whiskey or red-eyed gravey.

The air breaths easy,the nights move faster,..and you tell time by the clock. You don't want to be a jailbird all your life,do you-hmm? You're a highballing sparrow. So you fly high,old cock. Go out there and you bite the stars for me. Find yourself a fat mama and make yourself a family.                                                                                                        You hear?.................................................................................Beat it."-Birdman Of Alcatraz,1962.

    I wonder if you could write a poem solely on quotes, and make it tangible.

      β€œsuddenly there came a tapping,
