Labyrinth 61

 

 

The boy in the labyrinth peers from behind his fingers. And from behind his fingers, small beams of light cross his iris. Light sheds its act through the boy's rock-toughened knuckles. His sleep deficit calls him to the stage so that under the lights he is misrecognized. A stormy self. This is analogous to the boy's idea of physical beauty. How the landscape determines or dominates the content. Therefore the minotaur is beautiful in the dark. Therefore the boy is beautiful in the dark. Therefore the labyrinth is razored into pieces between the boy's fingers. The dream which had existed still swells in the opera house.
