A small fire to be sure, but fire nonetheless. Borne of a spark, faulty wiring the verdict. It just needed maintenance. A check up, steady hands and tools to close the circuit, cap the wires. Electricity flows, bends, arcs, and dissipates. In this home many of the sockets don’t work, but enough do, and all of them will when the work of moving electricity through the walls is done. And on occasion, when the lights go out, when storms break the arc, there will be enough energy to carry us through.
