A tanka written by Lee Sonogan
If you are looking for a needle in a haystack, and somebody has already cataloged all the straw in the haystack, when you get to that needle you will recognize it’s different than what was supposed to be there based on all that computerized haystack information that had been predetermined for you. – Francis Collins
Me to know/you to find out,
Straw stream macrophage,
Lucre abundance disengage.
When you’re telling taut, tight storytelling that has any kind of built-in plot twist elements, you tend to want to stack everything up on top of itself as opposed to letting things breathe and be languid in terms of the passage of time. – Julie Plec
