"The Minotaur"



Trapped, blinded, led; and in the end betrayed
Daily by new betrayals as he strays
Deep in his labyrinth, shaking and going mad,
Lost in a crooked city. Roundabout,
By the sea, the precipice, all the fantastic ways
Betrayal weaves its trap; lonliness knows the thread,
And the heart is lost, lost, trapped, blinded and led,
Deserted at the middle of the maze.




— Muriel Rukeyser
