A Single Reminder

by Alena

Her keys lay in the ashtray.
They were dropped there 
after her last excursion never to be moved again.
A single reminder that she once moved around this place.
Because all other evidence had been removed.
Purse removed from spot by the television.
House shoes removed from by the night stand.
Clothes removed from the closet.
Scent removed from the house.
All that remains are her keys...
attached to a keychain...
that bears the name of a person we can never forget.
