The house burnt down
Not to the ground but it might as well have
And I was so angry at probability
Why was it Wednesday
Why not Tuesday or Monday
Or any day that I did not have band at school
Any day that my clarinet wasn’t safe at school
I just wanted it to die
Die in the fire like it should have died
Like my kitty cat
Like my mom’s old photographs
Like my Dad’s comic book stash
Like my brother’s innocence

The house burnt down
Not to the ground but it might as well have
