The Barn

“When they pack up her house, a photograph will fall from the pages of a novel, carving arcs in the air as it drifts to the carpet. Pictured is an old falling-down barn. No one alive knows that this barn was built on the foundation of an even older falling-down barn, after it too fell down. No photographs, no paintings of that older structure exist, the thatched roof, the wattle and daub walls. No living soul heard the crack and the pop of the flames or remembers the charred east corner . . .”

Just sayin'.

I heard a politician suggest we retrofit schools so they have fewer entrances and exits to make it easier for the police to lock down a school and stop a shooter. Guns don't kill people. Doors kill people. #SantaFeHighSchool
