my only hope

see that puff of smoke in the distance? that’s my only hope. the landlord’s selling the property the house has to be inspectable by tomorrow it’s a mess have i mentioned the mess? and it’s only me to clean it.

so if the wind picks up and goes in the absolutely opposite direction of normal and the brushfire spreads like wildfire and takes out the house? that would be okay. not the whole neighborhood, i just need a good stray ember. i’m ready. i can get my computer out the door in seconds. i know just what i’d grab in case of fire. i am prepared.

bring it on.
