Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust, and All That Jazz
I was very much inspired by this video done by the BBC about the abandoned schools in St. Louis and then my brain went to thinking, “Well… what DID happen to the school years later?”
So here we are.
(I’m really quite happy with this)
It is September again.
School should have started a month ago.
But there sits Jerome Horwitz, silent, save for the soft scuttling’s of termites and the gentle wind that rushes in through the halls, rustling the peeling paint in a way that almost sounds like a smoker’s wheeze. Strange, squishy things, fuzzy things, grow in the gaps between the tiles of the bathrooms, through the vents that hang in chunks above what remains of the drop-down ceiling, home to so many other faster creatures that worm and crawl.
