ReFo and K-Man

(#1)

They found one another in the
Sexual swamp, where men go to
Drop their civilized masks and
Embrace their
Animal natures,
Copulate like
Beasts.

Or, in my fantasy, RED FOX and CAIMAN. In their animal forms:

(#2)

The red fox (Vulpes vulpes), largest of the true foxes, has the greatest geographic range of all members of the Carnivora family, being present across the entire Northern Hemisphere from the Arctic Circle to North Africa, North America and Eurasia. (Wikipedia link)

(#3)

A caiman is an alligatorid crocodilian belonging to the subfamily Caimaninae, one of two primary lineages within Alligatoridae, the other being alligators. (Wikipedia link)

[alligatorid crocodilian, a wonderful expression, two SWMWW words in succession — that is, in quintuple meter:

Quintuple meter or quintuple time (chiefly Brit.) is a musical meter characterized by five beats in a measure. The beats can have the pattern strong-weak-medium-weak-weak [as in alligatorid crocodilian] or strong-weak-weak-medium-weak, although a survey of certain forms of mostly American popular music suggests that strong-weak-weak-medium-weak is the more common of these two in these styles.

… In 1959, the Dave Brubeck Quartet released Time Out, a jazz album with music in unusual meters. It included Paul Desmond’s “Take Five”, in 5/4 time [SWWMW]. Against all expectations, the album went platinum, and “Take Five” became a jazz standard. (Wikipedia link)]

Red foxes are omnivores (though in the family Carnivora of mammals), caimans are obligate carnivores (though not in the family Carnivora, indeed not mammals at all, but reptiles). In any case, they’re both meat-eaters. As, metaphorically, are ReFo and K-Man.

One Response to “ReFo and K-Man”

    I’ve found that you can almost fit the melody of “My Favorite Things” to the accompaniment of “Take Five” (you have to double up on some of the words to fit them on one beat).
