There was a house fire in my neighborhood a little ways back. The family in the house was killed.

You can't really tell which house it is from the outside--it didn't collapse or char, and there's no police tape left. But all the other houses in the neighborhood have the snow melted off the top of them because of the heat running inside.

This house, standing empty and cold, is the only one covered in snow.


  1. That's a depressing mental picture.

  2. It's quite ironic, that a burning heat cools down the house to being cold and empty...

  3. Good eye and ear, that's like a prose haiku or something.
