We found ourselves
building walls
to keep the others out

You, those who jeered
and who couldn’t - wouldn’t -

I, those who whispered
and claimed to know
things long passed

And then, having stacked our bricks
so tall,
so thick,
so impenetrable,
we eclipsed the sky
and each despaired of the
lonely darkness,

Until we had
walled ourselves
so far in
that we found each other.

We lay down our trowels
and cleaned our tired hands of mortar
and instead
wove ourselves
with the softest of threads
into a
cocoon together.
