It stood in front of a forest and was an exact replica of mine, with everything on the other side, prefabricated twins staring at each other in a housing development. I walked around the side of the house along a worn footpath that led to his garden. The plush green trees carried the exotic denseness of a Pennsylvania summer, and the cicadas and chiggers zapped and barked in the canopy.
