Poems about Icarus
Southern Icarus
by Michael R. Burch

Windborne, lover of heights,
unspooled from the truck’s wildly lurching embrace,
you climb, skittish kite...

What do you know of the world’s despair,
gliding in vast solitariness there,
so that all that remains is to
fall?

Only a...

The angels are singing out loud
They want to break the treacherous cloud

“The Fallen”



Remote,
he sees himself 
in the reflection of cold close 
yet distant shop windows, 
his final journey along the 
Hard Time Road
walking alone, 
unforgiven, no home

a million knives...

Premium Member Victories for Love
The problem of military reactions
to territorial control issues
is not merely that violence breeds further strategic development
of violence,

There is a small cleanness about her,
as though she has always just been washed,
and there is a dull obedience to convention

Visit to Antietam
Alone I arrive, walking from Frederick
over the gaps, across gentle hills
out onto a knoll
overlooking this burnished landscape.
Before me I see countless writhing rows
