Shoes Poem

The shoes lie on the floor

with their their laces touching.

One of the


is on its side.

A third shoe has found its way

and has joined the other two shoes.

They have become a family of shoes,

lying there with their laces


watiing for me to

go to bed so they

can be in the dark together.

Shoes in the dark can walk sometimes,

sometimes can run,

and they run

and run

and can find treasure

and bring it back for you

and it will be there in the morning

and the shoes will lie there

like they

don’t know

like they are

just shoes
