Icarus – FlyFall

...on freedom

 

According to Brueghel
when Icarus fell
it was spring

 

a farmer was ploughing
his field
the whole pageantry

 

of the year was
awake tingling
with itself

 

sweating in the sun
that melted
the wings' wax

 

unsignificantly
off the coast
there was

 

a splash quite unnoticed
this was
Icarus drowning.

 

William Carlos Williams
