Micropoetry: “Fatalité”

Icarus
I could be
One of the claxoning
Geese

Car-chased by
A chariot afire
Yanked wingless
From the sky

A star subject
En plein air
Penned to page
By gravity’s
Downdraft

Facelifted
From the flock
Away from
God
Living
Against odds
Even
As I am taken
To sizzling completion

And begin
This fated toil
Anew
