Icarus

And what of you should I have?

With a heart such as yours

made with such feathers

and the air drumming along through such

vessels so unburdened by platelets

so thin and clear

and every desultory bone in that skeleton

sea glare stretched by tongs

and hardened

and skin such as yours,

simply the meniscus of the ocean

without resistance

Icarus, Icarus no I called

as you fell away from us.
