I tried to write stories about the boy with a bull head
but they always came out too a n g r y
loose limbed teenage boy with legs like iron
g o l d g o l d g o l d
a name like stars, fists like weapon
white teeth and yellow horns
neglect like a b r a n d like he e a r n e d it
what do you do when they built your own

Met my favourite Greek hero Theseus (not referring to the person behind the statue but the statue himself) whilst I was in Vienna 3 years ago today. I used to read his stories, the one that he went to slay a minotaur. Admired his courage for braving this man eating beast that dwells in the maze.
A replica of his temple was located in volksgarten. I went in but was empty inside maybe its under renovation?
