For aderyn’s birthday I gave myself a present, the chance to record her 221B series “Compounds or Stars.” Twenty little prose poems about two men “strung in orbit, bright”:
"Compounds or Stars is a series of 221Bs organized around the idea of Sherlock and John as a fixed binary, two objects in orbit. It circles the themes of love and knowledge: John knows and loves the stars, Sherlock knows and loves the chemical compounds. It’s a bit as if they love each other from opposite ends of the cosmos, Sherlock from the smallest and most everchanging details, John from the largest and most lasting totalities. In this, 221B Baker Street becomes a little cosmos of its own…”
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, ADERYN!
Oh. OH! OHH!!
