Towel

She excused herself from me
on the beach that day
and walked back to the house
to wash and clean up.
I soon followed
but it wasn't soon enough.
She had left.

She had left me behind
with a house full of memories,
a shaggy dog, a white cat,
and probably the last thing
she touched ...
something for me to save
with the rest of the memories
in that box ...
    hanging from a rack in the bathroom ...
a sandy towel.
