Oh, Icarus! How well you flew!

Ambition

Oh, Icarus!

How well you flew!

Wings stark white

Against a sky so blue;

Like Lots wife

You almost escaped

But you looked

The wrong way.

Trying to outpace

The past

that chased you

You wandered through

A new maze of clouds.

Wax melted

Against your arms

But you didn’t see it:

Didn’t pay attention

Until it was too late.

Water swallowed your body

And-mind full of

The memory

Of flying-

You forgot how to swim.

Now you lie in the dark,

Ensconced in a deep ocean

Where none can reach you.

Oh, Icarus!

How far you have fallen!

But, for a moment,

The sun knew of you too.
