So maybe it was a bad idea

So maybe it was a bad idea to burn all the two-by-fours from the garage, who really knows. But there, it’s done, and now there’s a — not to say bonfire, because maybe a bonfire would be more organised — conflagration, about the size of a kitchen, raging on the grass in the backyard.

People say that looking into a campfire makes you think clearly on who you are. If only someone had told you that making the fire bigger will not make you feel anything more. And what’s worse, all that’s left to show for it is smoke, and ash, and a space of burnt grass that will never grow back.

That's all there is, there isn't any more.
