I knew them all by name.— Chris Gathercole (@upthebuzzard) November 28, 2019
We grew together, traded, planned.
We took joy in warm sun, revelled in wind and rain.
They do not see winter coming.
Nor who cuts them adrift to die alone.
I stand taller now, atop their wispy corpses.
I knew them all by name.
I knew them all by name
