Today’s post topic: Fourth Wall You get to spend a day inside your favorite movie. Tell us which one it is — and what happens to you while you’re there.
I couldn’t help but notice the “trending” news on my Facebook feed this morning. “Evan Rachel Wood reveals she ‘felt like meat’ during 2003 Vanity Fair cover shoot.” I have a little beef with this.
First of all, it was 2003. This is news….today???
Secondly, she is a piece of meat. After you’ve lived in Yellowstone for a while you realize that all animals will one day be nothing more than meat. But for now Wood is a piece of meat with a beautiful singing voice, and, I’m sure, emotions, feelings, and intelligence.
So now, I take you to a Douglas Fir tree in Yellowstone’s Northern Range. I am there and singing. You should always be singing in Yellowstone, especially when you’re alone. Other animals need to know where you are, lest you become just a piece of meat.
This is what I sound like:
The marmots run from their dens
the birds are disturbed
by this singing girl
who’s not quite of their world.
With yellow hair
and blue eyes
she makes believe to dance.
But no one is in her arms,
this girl is in a trance.
