The Aftermath

All that is left is 
sometimes beyond recognition.
Rubber, glass and metal 
litter the ground below.
The sense of disaster and surprise
hangs over the air like the smoke;
making people avoid it.
A lone policeman searches for the cause
of the unexpected fire,
for any sign or clue.
the truck is taken away,
leaving most people with
a strange story to tell.

This was a truck across from my house, that spontaneously lit on fire. The funny thing was that my brother's friend was just talking about vehicles spontaneously combusting, so imagine our surprise when we see smoke outside. We have no idea what happened.
