Cyclops

What is it about a cyclops that is so fascinating? And what did these strange creatures think about? Food, it appeared. I remember going with my friends to see The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad and it was the cyclops that caught my eye. And wasn’t that eye, our third eye. The imagination. Later in adolescence another type of cyclops stole my attention. The opposite sex. And weren’t they as strange. And as frightening. And how was the Cyclops destroyed? By plunging a spear into his…. I think we’ll end the parallel there lest I venture into territory too Freudian and metaphoric.
