What Remains
by Candace Turner

I sit in my father's chair
Worn brown slippers lay at my feet
Grey ash lingers in the grooves of missing toes

Whisper dust from his closed book
Shut my eyes and randomly open

Fall into a well-worn spot
Words heavily underlined

Their importance remains a mystery
My mentor gone
