Shoes

There they were:
Black, leather, Eco –
You always bought Eco –
On the kitchen floor
While you were not.

Oddly empty, with your
feet so particular:
flat footed, broad based,
carrying your bow legs
belly, and that great head
with shock of hair.

Pigeon toed, uneven,
Yet determined, even angry,
gait increasingly unsteady,
Burdened.  In the end
Reluctant to move,
Crossed under a chair.

Their empty form
Said all this.
Black, leather, Eco
on the kitchen floor.
