[ ARIADNE / DARK DARK SHINE ]

"No enchanted sword or mirror—how much braver to pocket the spool of thread, head out, put your finger to a pulse and count. A puzzle sometimes, which simple thing reveals a boon.” The question posed, "labyrinth or circle?”.

. . . vibrant, cut-shining poems . . .

– Virginia McClure/Fovea

Where Squirrels play — and Berries die

And Hemlocks — bow — to God.

Emily Dickenson/#475

. . . and I thought love would always be

that brilliant on the wing and wild.

Ibykos/Last Sun in the Treetops, 6th Century B.C.E. 

preamble/labyrinth (or circle?)

lost/found/&-repeat. 

the arcing thread — 

a whip/lifeline/way/ 

              the-magical-gift-given/odd-bit— 

discovered in an old sewing basket. 

[who sews nowadays?] 

no enchanted sword or mirror —

how much braver to pocket the spool of thread —

head out — put your finger to a pulse and count.

a puzzle sometimes —

which simple thing reveals a boon.
