The End

Yes. It's another Icarus poem. I can't help it. I like poems about good ol' Icarus. And while Auden saw his fall as a failure, Jack Gilbert in Failing and Flying sees it as not as a failure at all. He sees it as the end of a success. Much like Angie and Frank's marriage. It was good while it lasted, but in reality it could not last long. After 8 years there are no regrets from either side. It is, simply, the end.
