  1. She obsesses over the past and how to address it, he insists on an unreflective journey into the future, and then both are confronted by the present, as they loop back upon themselves.

  4. In case some of this is new to you, Boise Ed is playing off the phrase “The Worm Ouroboros” – where “worm” would have meant snake, or in another context dragon. (Or in a wholly nother context, a Sandworm of Dune, father of Spice.)
