A Poem by Mark A. Fisher

We Forgot

we were waiting
could not speak
lest an enchantment come upon us
up out of darkness
where our stories were forged
in fairy tales
like hoarfrost
at the ends of trees
that go back to the beginning
with roots in fire
before time had meaning
and emptiness
what it was becoming
