Fairy Tale Sparknotes Part 1
Sleeping Beauty

That whole time
she slept

all those years
amongst overgrowth
in ivory

They pounded
on her door

*****

Snow White & Rose Red

One planted white
the other
red

which one had something
wrong with her head?

********

Goldilocks and The Three Bears

Who the fuck gave them chairs?

*********

The Little Mermaid
(Avant Disney)

Every step
she took toward him

would feel
like walking on
knives

Every step

she took toward
him

********

  1. But she did, and she could never go back; and in the version I read she yearned from time to time for the sea. Good tales, honest tales, allowing regret.

    cool idea — well executed

  3. I agree…well executed. Intriguing and sharp… Life is not a fairy tale. We are characters none the less. JV
