new hubris // adam icarus

Image

sinking your teeth in, it bursts.
a succulence so incomparable; it blurs,
the lines which define the comprehensible,
and the lines which held back the detestable;
you let the fruit through your mandibles.

with your wax wings you took flight,
gloriously, at height and with might!
but in arrogance you forgot your limits…
and in blindness you drowned in flames.

when you can no longer recall your own visage,
feel free to reign as… the god of a world
where no mirror will acknowledge you.
where you can never see what you have become.
