To the Minotaur’s Reflection
your animal quiet,
a dancing in the ear,
the broken-minded image
in this consciousness.
A natural exile
for a beast with no country.
This the unthought known,
the acrobat’s instinct,
the innocence of language lost.
Remember the sacrifice at the heart of man.
In the belly of the beast the ceremony begins,
the hidden sin trembles, the sword’s fury.
Do I see your image in the laughing mirror?
