Deadly Pursuit by Aurelio Rico Lopez III

Ah, a poem about the minotaur in his labyrinth.

I like how this is told in a more horrific and less heroic fashion than the legend.  I also like how the poem deftly introduces the minotaur as a horned shadow.

I know what this poem is about without the poem actually ever telling me directly what it's about.  Instead, the subject is deduced from the clues left throughout the work.
"I'm going to do what the warriors of old did. I'm going to recite poetry!"
