THE SNEAKERS OF MEN

by joannagilmanhyde

The Tomato-coloured Couch 11:42am

EYE Know An Old Woman

Who Lives In The Shoes

Of Her Dead Husband

As My Mother Used To Do —

My Mother Kept Her Stash

Underneath Her Wood-burning Stove

And Could Never Bring Her Self

To Mail Them

Back To Her Departed Love
