A new myth

Icarus' wax wings don't melt because he soars too close to the sun, but rather becuase those who are still stuck in the labrynith below cant see the horizons that he does and thus dont understand the accomplishment. Icarus' only audience then is his father who is flying away as fast as he can for safety's sake, even as he sees the accomplishment, he fears that too much time away from the land might prove tragedic, He might drift over the ocean and lose sight of the land altogether.

Icarus without an audience final falls back into the labrynith. If he is still breathing, he uses his breath to scream out his resentment at his audience, at his father.
