For Theseus, Today

A labyrinth, I think,
requires no answers. Just,
perhaps, an entrance, and,
more importantly, an exit.
In the middle is confusion,
anxiety, fear, and a struggle
to survive your self.
Self expression is irrelevant,
only direct action is admissible.
It is only practical to be calm,
and alert, and keep walking.
Some frustration is inevitable,
but one must remain focused.
Retracing is allowed, but
only __ number of times.
You are not allowed companions;
or instruments of digging or
destruction or of flight.
The assumption:
You let yourself in, so
there’s a reason you are here.

– From “Still, Life.”
