All the Little Red Girls by Angela Veronica Wong

The Aftermath

But maybe the wolf’s desire
was nothing more
than the want
to be with
someone else.
Maybe he loved
so much
he could only express
through consumption.

And maybe
she needed
rebirth, to destroy
evidence of her past.
Maybe she loved too much
and could only express
through destruction.

And maybe
out of a wolf’s belly,
our redness
covered by his redness,
is all want:
breaking free of bodies
consuming bodies.

Angela Veronica Wong was born and raised Texas. She lives in Manhattan and is working on a young adult novel.

All the Little Red Girls is a hand bound book of poems, with a vellum cover and attractive red ribbon to hogtie your dreams. It is printed in an edition of 74.
