Triplets on the mantle.

Three candles
red, brown, and green.
with blackened ash coated
In front of the painting with the cracked
glass front.
You shattered Prince Edward Island
when you were a baby
your parents say.
Now they sit, dejected, on the mantle
like a losing politician.
burned out during a power outage.
And now sit on the white brick
and dark.
