39. The Old Men Make a Fire


When it was freezing cold in the mornings, the old men would have a fire in a large can at the end of our block. Before we started off to school, we would warm ourselves. I still have burn scars on the backs of my calves, from the wire they kept around the can to keep the kids from getting too close.
