Requiem for Icarus, a poem by Tragic Rabbit

Recommended Posts

[i have such a pretty page on Word for this with an interesting painting of Icarus...but here's the text all unlovely]

Requiem for Icarus

White as bone

and near as quiet

beached

couched in sodden sand.

Pallid skin

yellow hair matted

rats

and seaweed ribbons.

Fearful, cautious

a stick to poke

alive?

as dead as dreams.

The hollow bones

of broken wings

felled

into this shallow sea.

Such a face

too beautiful for heaven

still

you never know.
