Little Point

by Iris Herriot

“Museum of London identifies man who raised alarm over Great Fire [of 1666]…
[T]he first witness… was Thomas Dagger, a journeyman baker… said [researcher] Kate Loveman…”
The Guardian

“Is this a Dagger that I see before me?”
The Scholar cried. The Specter whispered: “Kate:
No one will blame you if you just ignore me.
I saw; I spoke. But it was all too late.”
