In the Empty House by Ian Seed

We found what looked like a piece of light,
unmoving, frozen in the shape of a human being.

We were afraid to touch it – it looked cold enough
to burn us. What would happen if we could unfreeze it?

Would it melt and vanish, or would it keep its shape
and come alive? Could we take it away with us?

Would it make any difference to how we lived
or loved, one way or another
