The metaphor 'into the wolf's mouth' is the equivalent of 'good luck' or 'break a leg' but in the story also relates to the immigrants' leap into the New World with all it's perils. It also stands as a metaphor for all those today who would come to La Merica to seek a better life, but often encounter only hatred and violence.
