"Minotaur", a poem by Sonia Diaz Corrales, translated into English by Manny Delgadillo

In Crete there was once

A king who had a minotaur

That follows me to every place,

And with me rushes headlong into emptiness

And complains about the perpetuity of its monstrous head.

The only solution is in my own fear,

In the need to lend it my own head

So that the minotaur could see the world

And learn of its flu and its anxieties,

Of its alarming brilliance.

Knowing at last

That every single head is a small monstrosity

And that in the end,

A labyrinth may always exist.
