The One-Eyed Man Who Sleeps Beneath the Floor

Cash Myron Toklas


The one-eyed man who sleeps beneath the floor,
The secret king who hides deep in the woods:
Each has a mission we choose to ignore,
Each plots a coupe d’état while we just brood.

He is new to literary publication, although three of his poems appeared recently in The Piltdown Review. His current project is a reboot of Hesiod’s Theogony from the perspective of Saturn/Kronos. In general, his work explores the lessons that ancient myth can offer for modern life.
