7 Persimmon Street



Afterward, it was assumed that the multi-story building of seven Persimmon Street had dislodged itself during the earthquake that shook most of the West Coast like it was Stevie Nicks’ tambourine. And though the historians had the timing right, the implied notion that the extraction had occurred because of the tectonic shift had less to do with reality. Neither was there any reasonable explanation of how or why the red brick house had begun to orbit the planet. All anyone, including the residents, knew was that number seven still navigated the atmospheric traffic along with satellites and bored billionaires.
