We all gathered around the prints:
Somewhere in the Vollard suite

a girl leads a minotaur
through the night

after a maze of loops
and airy ateliers

the effect is stark–
the stars are gouged out

the faces lit
by some internal source.

It notes he is blind.
The aquatint

is Rembrant-black
the curator said,

an opaque way to state
more than, I think–

a night that dark
is felt, not seen.
