Bring us Icarus

Bring us Icarus.

 

Lazarus won’t do

for the rest of us

resurrected in spite of us.

 

Bring us the fallen

those with misdeeds.

 

Match our misdemeanors

our simply broken demeanors.

 

Bring us Daedalus.

 

Abraham won’t do

for the rest of us;

he fathered righteous sons.

 

Bring us the forgotten

broken fathers, feathers.

 

Find us fitting brothers

who’ve taken selfish measures.

 

Bring us brothers,

bring us fathers,

 

broken-hearted families

feather-weight vanities.

 

Mismatched histories.
