10.5.12

Daedalus, years, and as you like it.


one person has voted.
one hundred percent say yes.

When dr. Mycoff dismissed the last college class
of my junior year, The royal we
asked him for one final Jaques soliloquy
which he obliged

'all the world is'
he began,
and took us through life's seasons
ending my youth,
with beautiful irony
on the word 'everything'.

I am no longer a child,
though i will never put aside childish things.
With 22 years behind me,
I am full of melancholy life.
I have flown and been broken,
and and i have seen,
too often,
Icarus illuminated
by the sun.

but i promise this:
I will look you in your eyes
if ever you need me to.
