Second Hand Shoes After I've sat and mused awhile on things I might have seen or missed or places that I might have been or those I could or not resist, I slowly bend to pull the laces intertwining with my shoes, that have not and have been places on some ambling country cruise. At times I've caught myself amused to think they, sometime in the past, clung to someone else's feet treading down a distant street. And, knowing I'll not be the last, take care to see they're not abused. It's Not Unknown It's not unknown for one to see a deer stopped in it's tracks or sight a gasping bumble bee making sneak attacks on brightly coloured pantaloons, drying in the breeze on hot and sunny afternoons just right for outdoor teas. And it is quite astonishing to what lengths we will go to shoot the deer and swat the bee and raze the pastures low. We say the urging comes from lust to equalise this dust, with dust.
