Looking at Matisse’s Fall of Icarus

    U
WHEN TO SAY
to bolt to lock
to bolt to flee
unbolt my heart
or be the shining
death of me

          UU
HOW TO SAY
maybe if i put one letter
inside another
made the rest blue
said thank god,
up yours, fuck you
– say what?

        UUU
WHERE TO SAY
stars of Mary
stars of Europe
can a boy see
the same stars
from Mars?

      UUUU
WHO’S TO SAY
anyone –
as long as they
believe in parthenogenesis
and know how to center-align

          IOU
WHAT TO SAY
when friends drop in –
but first – check to see
that their wings
are not broken
