One Last Look (haibun)
She takes one last look around the house to be sure all is out. She looks in the master bedroom and sees the scar on the wall made by the dresser when it was mooved out. "One last dent", she laughs to herself.
Now she goes through the closets. They're empty, other than dust and lint. It reminds her of the first time they saw them.
She goes out the garage door and closes it. Only then does she realize that she'll never be in there again.....
