to the owner of a shoe: rupert's tale

*based on a true story*

To whom it may concern,

I have stolen your shoe.

It is a black Adidas skating shoe,
with write stripes.

I apologize.

Wear and tear shows me
what fun you must have had together.

Skating down the street,
getting into fights with the preppy kids

The time you were caught
kissing a girl on your bed one night.

The state fair, running in the rain,
hackey sack, soccer,

Your right shoe
must be rather lonely,

being only one
in a pair of two shoes.

For that I apologize,
but you can't have the shoe back.
