A Passing

Ode to old shoes

Smelly beyond redemption-shoes of Walmart
Hikers through muck and grime
Callus hider extraordinaire cheap Chinese imports
Bought on a whim to slip on just in time
When the dog bolted upright to exit-quick
Derided by younger generation as old man shoes
Now you sit atop the pile of detrious thick
You’ve dropped the last crud on the kitchen floor-no excuse
For nineteen ninty five you were no fashion statement
And the Velcro ripsound is no more. No reinstatement.
