“The man sat for a time and thought. He did not think of anything in particular. He did not think about the house or himself or the gray. He thought of what might come after. What was the room above the attic? What was below the basement? Was there a second door behind the first door? If he were to die and the house remained, would there still be a part of him that lived within the house, that walked up and down the stairs, and looked out the gray windows, and considered how the gray became a part of him? Would that part which was left behind also want to die?”
