"Passing of the Minotaurs," by Rjurik Davidson: An Appreciation by E. Catherine Tobler

Dear R. Davidson,
You had me at "minotaur,"
and labyrinth jokes.

Majestic dark head;
The interlacing lashes
of liquid black eyes.

A desperate woman
Will risk everything she has.
Don't damage the eyes.

She watches them come;
she'll never be free of them.
She cried only once.

A sunken city;
the sea serpents will eat you.
Moss blows on soft waves.
