Sleeping Ariadne

from by Kalahari Surfers



Sleeping in the Vatican
She woke up in a labyrinth
to the smell of wax and wood
spellbound by a Minotaur
she never understood
that the brains of a beast
and the blood of a lamb
is only 10 percent man

Sleeping in the Vatican

mistress of the labyrinth
she’s frozen on the stairs
between sleep and wakening
for over a thousand years
spellbound by a metaphor
Cleopatra' tears
near the gallery of masks
the three graces
immune to all the prayers

Sleeping in the Vatican
Sleeping on the Vatican floor
