The Minotaur

blooms a stem
from mid-brain, eye
vessel: a bulb
tethered to root
growing wispy
long, to scratch
the cloud strata
a singlet drop
ripples on the surface
circular waves
expand against
burning a blue hole
in the sky
pillar of light
from cosmos to terra
cast along
the stem tether
birthing leafy outlets
drinking in the particulate
dust of aeons
growing undirected
manifest labyrinth
vines, pulsing with lifeblood
to arouse
the indomitable beast
in us all.
