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.
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.
