timber

Last night, lightning cracked an enormous tree very near to the stump and felled it, as if an axe had cut it down, one block south and east of where I live, at 30th and Calvert. It smashed a Hopkins van and blocked the street. No one was hurt. A crowd gathered, taking cell phone pictures, and muttering “Facebook” to themselves. N and I walked past. It seemed like bad luck to look.
