The pairs of shoes stand in rows,
polished and jet, like coffins for small pets,
lined with off-white. Evacuated children
sit in rows eyeing the pairs,
child after child after child, no parents
anywhere near. When it’s their turn,
they get a pair of new shoes
and the old ones are taken away.
Of course it is kind of the nice people
to give them the shoes. Of course it is better
to be here in the country, not there where the
explode and hurl down pieces of children.
Of course, of course. This life that has been
given them like a task! This life this
black bright narrow unbroken-in shoe.
