Fire

There was an apartment building near us that burned recently.   No one was hurt, but I wonder what happened to the residents.   I got to know one of them, an elderly lady who would take a walk most days.   We’d stop and talk, I learned about her no-good skirt chasing husband, and her quiet life alone where she wished she had more strength and energy to walk farther.

I went by the place the other day and took pictures of the destruction.   The complex was shaped like an E and every apartment burned.   How quickly life can change.
