Another shoe on the road

Seeing a solitary shoe or boot on the highway again I imagined another night of lonely horror for the one who wore it. Kidnapped no doubt. Dragged to the city.

How I laughed years later when shoes were tied to the bumper of a car gaily painted with the words, “Just Married!”
