Icarus

The Fall of Icarus, Bernard Picart (1731)

Icarus
All of us
Flying too fast
Too far
Too high
Icarus
All of us
Falling at last
Truth exposes the lie

In the water
In the shallow mud
Nothing broken
Tasting no blood
Upside down
Falling below
When the door is shut
Try the window

Too fast
Too far
Too high
A sudden stop exposes the lie

(From my notebook | 4.23.23)
