💥 SPOILERS FOR CUNT TOWARD ENEMY 💥
Bombs are associated with “colored wires”.
So everyone has their own color.
Lazur = blue
Cortázar = the language fits one of his backgrounds and it means something like “old stable”
Rubicon = a menacing but beautiful red word. Don’t cross him…
Calendula was the obvious name for the third character, as it is an orange flower (opposite on the color wheel from Lazur’s blue), means little clock (time is a theme of the book and Calendula seeks to minimize and control time), and it kind of sounds like Caligula. Triple significance.
A bomb is impossible to fit in the brain. So I explode it into Time + Destruction. These are impossible to fit as well, so I divide again.
Everyone has a wristwatch.
Everyone carries a countdown on their arm.
The mundane reflects the unspeakable.
Knowing these simple elements allows me to extrapolate the connective tissue between everything.💣 👁️ READ MORE 👁️💣
