poetry - Not the Last Flight of Icarus

"Not the Last Flight of Icarus", completely revised, has been accepted by Every Day Poets. :D

Tease: if you want to see the new version, you'll have to check out EDP. I'll post a link when it's live--no date has yet been assigned. I'm presuming December, but it could be further out (their lineup for November is solid).

Subscribe to their daily email. It's quite a variety of poetry (1 a day), so there's a good chance it's not all to your taste, but I think it's all good to read (or at least skim, in some cases ;) ).

I've been reading from day 1, excited about the project from its sister-project Every Day Fiction.

[edited: the poem is "Not the Last Flight of Icarus", vs "The Last Flight of Icarus". My bad. I need to slow down and triple-check things, sometimes.]

Thanks. I'm really enjoying this new "poetry thang" I've got going on. It's really been a while since the ranker went all depressed (and I stopped posting there because I wanted to maybe eventually publish). And, well, yay! :)

Congratulations!

I look forward to reading the revised version. I'm a fan of the "Every Day..." sites.

Thanks :D It was pretty much a ground-up rewrite trying to better frame the idea (and to get rid of parentheticals... though I think that poem might have only had one I had to re-frame?)

Thanks, and certainly :) Butbut aren't you subscribed already? ;) :)

School Uniform is my favorite so far. Light hearted sci-fi with a dark crunchy center.

I really need to stop responding with the wrong account. Not nanoing but still keeping the other open for notes. WHEE!

I'm signed up for EDF, but my appreciation / knowledge of poetry is... let's just be polite and say "limited". Nevertheless, a retelling of the Icarus story sounds like soemthing I can enjoy.

Yeah, I'm still ... well, there's poetry I like, there's poetry I like a lot, and then there's most of what I read. ;) And I'm not very educated as things stand as to all of that.

It's not quite a retelling of the tale so much as a extension of context--the beginning and end that bookend the usual.

A childhood fanaticism for Greek mythology - still with me today - means that I can't resist something like that...

I'm a little scared, now, but will cling to the hope that it doesn't disappoint! ;)

Congratulations Kaolin. :) I can't wait to read the revised version once it's up in EDP.
