Icara - Ezra Blaize


"Who cares?" you say
in response to hateful
opiate pipedreams.

Sure then--see if I care
when we find you hanging
like an expensive coat

from the third story
hotel balcony. We don't
write poems about the ones

who fly to shore--we write
them about starlets
who wear wax wings and

jump from bridges.


Ezra Blaize is an avid writer who completed his undergraduate work in English and Education at Flagler College in St. Augustine, FL. He is currently working towards his PhD in the Curriculum and Instruction Department at UW-Madison.
