I flew to the sun once.
went farther
than Icarus
met Narcissus too.
hubris accompanied me
most of the way.
the wax held
the feathers
very well until
I rounded
but from there
it was a
long fall,
a long
fall into
funny how that works,
all seriousness
and angst aside,
maybe Nietzsche
was right,
stronger yes,
and it didn’t
kill me.
