Green, brown, and white 5-panel painting of boy chasing another boy through a suburban neighborhood at night with ladders, hanging bottles, garden hose, and pipes until one falls like Icarus into underground water by Steven L Jones
Wet (Dreamscape with Fall of Icarus)
Acrylic ink on dyed paper with wooden frames
9.75" x 10.75" / 11.25" x 20.5" / 26.5" x 26.5" / 25.5" x 11.25" / 9.75" x 18.75"

In Brueghel's Icarus, for instance: how everything turns away
Quite leisurely from the disaster; the ploughman may
Have heard the splash, the forsaken cry,
But for him it was not an important failure; the sun shone
As it had to on the white legs disappearing into the green
Water, and the expensive delicate ship that must have seen
Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky,
Had somewhere to get to and sailed calmly on.

- W. H. Auden

Help thy brother's boat across, and Lo! Thine own has reached the shore.

- Hindu proverb
