After his son Icarus’s death during their ill-fated escape from King Minos in Crete, Daedalus settled in Sicily. But Minos kept searching for him. To lure Daedalus out from hiding Minos offered a reward to whoever could thread a string through a spiral seashell


Watching a lone ant
March in ever dwindling circles
Carrying his thread
Through the twists of a small shell

In the hope that I might be revealed
To the one who wants to find me
And I’ll let him take me back
Submit willingly and timely

So when Minos steps into the room
And calls to me by name
I feel all my burden lift
Know my time has finally waned

I am ready to divest myself
Of all encumbering things
And think of nothing
Except for new kinds of wax to make wings
