Mars by Mark Gilbert

We started it.

We crashed a crunch
of metal and gadgets
into their dust
no wonder they retaliated
no wonder
they killed us all
in fourteen slow minutes
fifteen years later
when our paths crossed


Mark Gilbert writes poetry and prose and in between. His work may be found in Atlas Poetica, Abyss & Apex, Narrow Road and Bamboo Hut. He lives in the UK.
