Ari

in the shadow of a minotaur

I came across a supposition:

    that the difference between a maze and a labyrinth

    is a matter of the heart.

you can get lost in a maze.

    but in a labyrinth

 so long as you go forward,

          you will find the center

if we agree with this supposition

then we must follow the red threaded question it holds

is your heart a maze

   holding captive 

      poor adventurers

incapable of solving it’s mystery

or

a labyrinth

  home to just

        one.

who put their hand to the wall

   closed their eyes

       and walked

    Just one- or Any one?

    Just one.

    (assured, known, placed)

    But how many must be eaten by bull-touched siblings before one makes it through?

    Snacks are quite nice.

    One designed as a race,
    the other a hunt-

    survival will require
    both
    snacks and sacrifices.

    Nice can be devoured by darkness
    but endure;
    pathways stained with blood
    and tears – wept for fear,
    procure some kind of
    damning
    redemption

    taking us low,
    yet fleeing forward,
    always,

    onward to our fated salvation.

    nice is what we write
    in the blood
    of innocence
    to remind
    ourselves
    that
    even
    beasts
    know
    that kindness
    always comes
    with a cost
