needed to get out of town
took a drive to the country
got a flat tyre
asked someone if i could stay
a nice man – widower let me stay
he had a farm with ducks, birs, pigs, horses
let me feed them.
he was a very kind man – also getting lots of support from the townspeople. i think it was only recently his wife had died. saw a ‘deceased’ sticker/tag on the front face of his phone. like that’s all he could see
in his house – there were only a few photos of him and his wife – also no sign of children/grandchildren.
he had an imac – skype window open at the time
under the bench in the kitchen there was a little guest bed set up
he had a barbeque and the town mayor lent his condolences
