minotaur (Free verse) by Bill Z Bub
keep one hand on the wall and turn to face the bull this child of ancient curse did work the daedalus machine and found you tugging thread all through these hidden halls keep in mind this thing is part man part bull and part maze

Up the ladder: Strung Out On Sunlight
Down the ladder: Stygian Serpent

I don't get it. Is this supposed to be some kind of allegory or are you just giving some late advice to Theseus in all lower case?

Profound, but somehow the last stanza is too giving? Does that make any sense?

Hot damn.

"Did work the daedalus machine"? (I know daedalus built the maze, but seems an odd way to put it.) Keenly rendered, B.Z.B., but it seems more poem fragment than poem.

It is a fragment. I plan on expanding it eventually.
The key to the (not really well thought out) metaphor is:
daedalus machine = computer/internet

like the concept--look forward to seeing what you do with it.
