The resurfacing of an old wound

fears surrounding woman/mother which have been passed down,

festering unseen beneath an intergenerational skin

this churning tumult, left unexamined has torn its way through

child/ beast has been killed in the upheaval

...........................................

In ̶A̶ ̶s̶ ̶t̶ ̶e̶ ̶r̶ ̶i̶ ̶o̶ ̶n̶ , Haywood attempts to crawl into the skin of Borges classic reinterpretation of the Minotaur Myth “La Casa de Asterion”, and wield its humanizing revelations to contextualize her own movements through the meat of distorted grief and resentment.
