New Story: Springfield, 1967, House Fire, What Was / Is

We visit a house that is not there. Oh, but you do it all the time. This Victorian / Edwardian neighborhood, Springfield, just north of downtown.

The h0use was full of smoke. She brought her pocketbook and parakeet downstairs.

So much more is gone than present, but all of it is here. If you know to understand it. Everthing’s a double exposure. If you can see historically.
