Minotaurs never existed.

Obnoxious Athenians did.
And labyrinths engulf us.
Labyrinths within ever-smaller labyrinths
are culture...
                    and poems are feeble
stick-drawings for veal-people.

But Minotaurs, like so many truths in Greek myths, have always existed: horned and horny men devouring the young and the beautiful.

Alas, no. The Minotaur was a 'monster' (maybe just autistic) immured in his dark (brain-like ?) labyrinth until he is killed by the vainglorious and deeply unpleasant Athenian, Theseus.

Ever the blogger I…must say that myth speaks the unspeakable and writes the history of mind and soul. There are monsters among us--they don't have to have a bull's head and horns; there are dark, brain-like labyrinths--they don't have to consist of underground maze tunnels; and, there are vainglorious, deeply unpleasant men who kill--they don't have to be from Athens or have the name of Theseus.
