Icarus Rewritten

I would have followed his arc
through the heavens, shrugged off the warnings of my father
and crossed into the vastness of the world,
but I would have left him
in his plunge into the Aegean. I would have driven
my melting wings unbent into the sun
with the depth of my need––

––only then could I hope to return unto your skin
