THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 359

Hose

The same thought
scrolled through my head.
Where is the fire truck?
Lindsey tried to stand
and hook her arms around my waist,
but she almost made me fall again.
The smoke thickened.
I no longer knew
which way was out.
I dropped to the floor,
my eyes burning.
Lindsey clung to me
like I was a life preserver.
I stumbled over a garden hose
curled like a dead snake.
I remembered a dream I had.
Lindsey had a hose.
She put the fire out.

The firefighters were probably
too busy putting out the fire
in the library
to worry about
the storage shed.
