Bio Note: Late in life I've discovered, developed my own form of surrealism in my "Songs of Ephram Pratt." the first one arriving back in 2007 or so. We're now at close to a thousand & it kinda dominates my writing time. You may have seen some on the Internet. Google 'em. My more conventional poems still seem to come along from time to time. My most recent book was The Love Songs of Ephram Pratt from Uttered Chaos Press in 2019.
Ephram Pratt Retells the Myth of Minotaur
Questioning eternity, did the Minotaur survive and settle into a rarified forever, with off-spring living into eternity? Secrets are often kept from the gods and who is to know after a billion years who lives among the jonquil and hyacinth lining the boulevards of Olympus and Valhalla? Only those gifted with secret tongues, spreading secrets among the stars, whispering into the ears of those demanding suffrage for the Minotaur.
