    science fails
    yet again

    to explain the big bang
    in terms of its rich and
    calming blues

    i read fire, yes. and brimstone

    but underneath it
    a tea ceremony

    unfolding in
    1000 yrs of
    holy silence

    between two top hats
    and a deeply rounded
    bowl of milk

    Hey, not sure if there’s necessarily a definitive ‘meaning.’ I kind of just figured it out as I went along. But I’ll do my best to explain my thought process, since I hate when writers dodge questions by pretending their ‘process’ is some like sacred and mysterious thing. It’s like, you’re just slapping words together, Geppetto. Get over it.

    Anyway I’ve been reading Ursula K. Le Guinn’s A Wizard of Earth Sea recently, in which the main conflict is basically the hero’s shadow spends years and years trying to hunt and kill him. I thought it was really powerful, and wanted to do something that had a similar sort of fatalistic magical tone. I figured I’d use a wolf bc they’re cool and spooky and archetypal. From ‘wolf’ I jumped to Peter, but also Little Red Riding Hood. Then I figured I could combine the two and do a thing where the hostility turns sexual by the end. Like maybe the narrator secretly liked it. That felt like the right move. Get real weird and then just end it with a big creepy ‘wtf?’ Then vanish in a puff of smoke.

    Thanks for the q. Hope this helped.
