shoeless

he never heard 
her shoeless steps

a knock neither
expected nor
suspected

a pressing hunger
what?
and need

a unresisting
monument
erected

what is this thing
that we call
life

what is this
carnival
this shadow play --

her never heard
her shoeless steps

it wasn't s'posed
to all go down

this

way
