The Odd Things We Keep, by Jefferson J.W. Wayne

-I kept his cologne.

-I kept his dresser.

-I kept his alarm clock.

-I kept a basket of loose change.

-I kept his hats.

-I kept his mail sorter.

-I kept his bedroom door.

-I kept a piece
of the bathroom wall.

-I kept his ashes in a locket
to wear around my neck.
